Serious Fraud Office Fined £180,000

The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has been fined £180,000 after thousands of confidential documents from a high-profile bribery investigation were mistakenly sent to the wrong person.
The papers, from an investigation into a BAE Systems deal, contained evidence relating to 64 people.
They were wrongly sent to a witness in the case in an "astounding" lapse, the Information Commissioner's Office said.
The SFO said it had "substantially overhauled its procedures".
It is the first time the SFO has been fined by the UK's privacy regulator.
The documents - including bank statements, hospital invoices and passport details - related to the SFO's investigation into allegations that executives at BAE received payments as part of an arms deal with Saudi Arabia.
