The NSW privacy commissioner has called for a thorough investigation after thousands of photo ID cards, including gun licences, were mistakenly sent to the wrong people in a “significant” security breach.

Among the documents mailed out were 2000 driver’s licences, 104 firearm licences, 318 permits to use disabled parking, 242 proof of age cards, 26 security licences and 3 commercial and private investigator licences.
