DVLA email smut dragnet catches 65

Gross misconduct

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The email porn investigation at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) which saw staff get the boot earlier this year today saw a further 65 staff charged with gross misconduct.

A trawl of the agency's network had fingered more staff for "inappropriate use of its email facility". A spokeswoman said: "All servers have been scrutinised, with no exceptions."

The spokeswoman said the DVLA would give the 65 the opportunity to respond to the allegations. She said: "The investigation will follow our normal procedures and all concerned will have the opportunity to respond to the charge."

Back in June, 101 of the agency's 6,000 employees were disciplined and 14 fired as part of the investigation. At the time the DVLA said the nature of the images each individual distributed determined whether they were sacked or reprimanded. ®
