A Suffolk council has apologised after mistakenly asking residents to log on to an adult website.
Mid Suffolk District Council sent a voter registration letter to 80 residents - 31 of which were delivered - in the Claydon and Barham wards asking them to confirm who lives at their address.
Due to a 'technical glitch', the website provided in the letter turned out to have little to do with elections.
The letter also asked residents to call 00000 000 000 to register their eligibility to vote.
'Sending out this web address was absolutely not our intent and we apologise unreservedly to anyone who received it'” said Michael Evans, strategic director at Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils. 'It is unfortunate the system that produced the letters for Mid Suffolk has led to this unacceptable mistake. It should not have happened and we are putting it right.
'The forms had been hand delivered and although only 80 were affected in Claydon and Barham as soon as the mistake was brought to our notice we stopped their delivery
'There will be a letter of apology sent out to those who received the wrong information as soon as possible and once again we apologise for this error.'
