No not yet they say they will send a member of their team up on monday week!!! But no mention of anhy further compensation. My car keys were also on the key ring and feel like i need to change my car as a result of this.

This may amount to a minor breach of data protection but its not likely the informatoin commissioner would have any interest in this. Its not really in the public interest as he was doing a good deed.

 

In any event, compensation is very low as you have suffered no loss. Probably less than £50.
