Vodafone has launched an urgent investigation after a member of its customer support staff sent a picture of his penis to a customer's mobile phone.

Abi Penny, 21, called Vodafone after struggling to send a piccie to one of her chums, reports The Sun.

But the guy at the Scottish call centre started flirting with her, reports the paper, and after exchanging pictures to show that her phone worked, he sent her a snap of his todger.

She told the paper: "He sent me a picture of his manhood. I was really worried as he had all my details up on his screen. I feared he could stalk me. I feel violated. He's a sick pervert."

A Vodafone spokeswoman told The Register: "We're extremely concerned by this and have launched a full investigation." She confirmed that the person who sent the image has been identified - we didn't ask how - and suspended from work while the company carries out the inquiry. ®
