The former deputy London mayor Richard Barnes has encountered some sort of telephone malfunction, after several photos of his private parts somehow uploaded themselves to his Facebook page.
Whether this was an accident or the result of a "hack" isn't entirely obvious. While it would appear that Barnes had his iPhone set to auto-upload photos to Facebook and was having a lovely evening flopping it out to take some XXX selfies, the politician claims it was "utterly and totally a mistake" adding that he'd been "hacked into" by someone else.
So it was either a mistake or you've been hacked. It can't be both, can it? Barnes also told Metro: "I'm a 65-year-old gay man on his own... It’s not the sort of thing I do." [TrendingCentral via Metro]
