AVDC Apologise For Round Robin Email Leak

6:00am 10th August 2012

An email from one of Buckinghamshire's councils has included more than 800 email addresses - of other residents.

It happened on Wednesday afternoon when a round-robin from Aylesbury Vale District Council was sent out to inform residents of a new service the council's offering about waste collection.

But instead of just being addressed individually with the other recipients benig blind carbon-copy; the body of the email contained all 840 other recipients.

In a statement to Mix96 the council says it was "human error", and a second email was very quickly sent out apologising for the mistake.

We're told an internal investigation is currently underway, and is due to report back after the weekend.

AVDC say they want to assure residents they do take internet security and the protection of personal information "very seriously" and have internal security procedures in place to ensure it doesn't happen again.
