Council workers face Lego email probe

Some face sack

Staff at Flintshire County Council are facing disciplinary action after allegations that they abused the local authority's email system.

According to a story on ICNorthWales 47 workers have been interviewed as part of an investigation.

Most of those concerned have already been dealt with but it seems a small handful could face the boot over the incident. According to the report the images in question may - or may not - be of a pornographic nature.

Specifically, it seems two Lego characters were pictured in what is understood to be a sex act. There's also some reference to George W Bush and Osama bin Laden.

In a statement Flintshire CC said: "The e-mail cases vary in nature. The less serious ones have been dealt with by means of managerial interviews. The more serious cases are being dealt with under the council's disciplinary procedures.

"Abuse of the e-mail system has recently been reported as being the single most common disciplinary problem for employers nationally," it said.
