Fines plan over nuisance calls

Companies that bombard people with nuisance marketing calls will be more likely to face fines of up to £500,000, under Government proposals.
Culture Secretary Sajid Javid wants to change legal definitions to ensure that unacceptable behaviour is punished.

Currently the Information Commissioner has to prove that a firm's conduct has caused "substantial damage or substantial distress".

The plans put out for consultation would see that lowered to causing "annoyance, inconvenience or anxiety"
