A list of more than 1,000 addresses of New Years Honours recipients, including those of senior police officers and politicians, has been accidentally published by the government.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
The file was uploaded to the official website, but has since been removed.
The Cabinet Office told the BBC: "We apologise to all those affected and are looking into how this happened."
Among the addresses are those of Sir Elton John and former director of public prosecutions Alison Saunders.
Also on the list of 1,097 honours recipients are high-profile names like cricketer Ben Stokes, former Conservative Party leader Iain Duncan Smith, TV cook Nadiya Hussain, and former Ofcom boss Sharon White.
A government spokesman said: "A version of the New Year Honours 2020 list was published in error which contained recipients' addresses.
"The information was removed as soon as possible.
"We have reported the matter to the ICO [Information Commissioner's Office] and are contacting all those affected directly."
The ICO, which has the power to fine organisations for data breaches, said it will be "making enquiries".
