  8. 'Glitch in security' allowed porn to appear on council signs

    A council investigation into how pornographic images came to be on one of their digital street signs in Telford has concluded the sign wasn't hacked.

    Instead Telford and Wrekin Council believes there was a glitch in the signs' security settings which allowed a passer-by to simply search for the content and put it on display.

    The council added that a "thorough review of security settings" was now being carried out and the signs would remain switched off for the time being.

    Plans for a link road connecting the M54 with the M6 and M6 Toll have been described as "one big step forward" by the leader of Telford and Wrekin Council.
