THE National Probation Service is carrying out an ‘urgent review’ after a mistake resulted in ‘distressing’ falsely-addressed letters to victims of crime.
As reported, Gosport resident Joy Sims received a letter from the service meant for her but addressed to her son, Jon Hancock, who was murdered almost 11 years ago.
A spokesperson from the service said: ‘We are very sorry for the mistake which will have been distressing for loved ones.
‘We are carrying out an urgent review to ensure this does not happen again.’
“There is no suggestion that sensitive personal information has been disclosed to individuals who should not have it.
