A Downton Abbey actress targeted in a hacking scandal that saw intimate images and videos of her leaked, said the treatment of women online must be better policed.

Former ballerina Jessica Brown Findlay (26), who plays Lady Sybil in the period drama, told the Sunday Telegraph's Stella Magazine that she wants to "start speaking up" after so far remaining tightlipped about her ordeal.

She said: "To me, there seem to be two sets of rules: one for the real world and one for the cyber world. I don't understand why, in a society where we are encouraged to live through the internet, that forum is not being better policed."

In 2014, hackers stole intimated images and naked video clips from her Apple iCloud account.
