UK honors recipients' addresses accidentally leaked online: BBC
The British government accidentally published online the home and work addresses of more than 1,000 New Year’s Honors recipients including singer Sir Elton John, the BBC reported on Saturday.
The version of the New Year Honors 2020 list which contained the addresses was taken down from the website “as soon as possible”, and the Cabinet Office apologized to those affected, the BBC cited a government spokesman as saying.
Representatives of the Cabinet Office could not immediately be reached for comment.
Britain has recognized its film-directing and cricketing stars in the New Year’s honors list, with a damehood for Olivia Newton-John and knighthoods for Sam Mendes, Steve McQueen and cricketer Clive Lloyd.
