About 800 people in Buckinghamshire had their email addresses leaked by their district council in an email about waste collection.

Aylesbury Vale District Council sent out a message to 840 people about garden waste collection that had everyone's email addresses pasted into the main body of the missive.

The council told The Reg that the email privacy fail was down to human error.

"We sent an apology to all those affected as soon it was discovered," a spokesperson said. "We take the security of our data very seriously and we have information and security policies in place.

"We [also] take the situation that happened yesterday very seriously and are undergoing an internal investigation with our fraud team that will report back early last week." ®
