It has been fined £100,000 by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) after documents containing personal details of over 100 people were found in a disused building. Social care files, along with 45 bags of confidential waste, were found at Town End House, in Havant. They contained highly sensitive information about adults and children in vulnerable circumstances.

I wonder how much the Council has spent on external legal audits and consultants....I betcha its six figures....
