The Liverpool Echo broke this story - tracking the IPs of offensive wikipedia edits to the UK governments secure internet.

Whitehall issued a statement on the story

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/hillsborough-wikipedia-edits

And the BBC followed up with more investigation of wikipedia editing from government IP addresses.

[bbc.co.uk...]

I think that this may be just the tip of the iceberg of politically motivated editing of wikipedia and that similar stories may well be uncovered in other countries.
