Personal details made available on London marathon website

11:41 am on 24 April 2012

The home and email addresses of the 38,000 entrants to last weekend's London Marathon were accidentally published on the organisers' website.

A number of high-profile celebrities and politicians were among those who had their personal details made public in the data protection breach.

The details were accessible all day to anybody logging on to the site.

Marathon organisers were unaware of the security breach until they were alerted by the BBC.
