She can be prosecuted for releasing info until the U.K. Data Protection Act.
She will be arrested and charged.

That's not an employment law matter, it's a criminal matter. If she did it deliberately, she could face prison.

It would almost certainly be a breach of confidentiality as it is again, almost certainly, a condition of your employment as specified in your contract of employment
Gross misconduct which could easily get you fired or affect compensation for loss of employment by redundancy etc
