UK: Hundreds of email addresses revealed in gaffe

James Oxenham reports:

Hundreds of personal email addresses were sent to residents in a huge data breach by the county council.

On Friday evening (June 8) West Sussex County Council sent out emails to people who commented on plans to build an incinerator in Horsham, the vast majority of whom objected.

People who received the message could see the email addresses of all the other recipients.

So far it has not been confirmed how many email addresses were shared but more than 1,160 objections were received by the council.
