'Failure of management' over Google data

The information watchdog is re-opening its investigation into Google's admission that it gathered tons of data from private laptops without the users' knowledge.

Peter Barron, Google's director of external affairs, said that they were very clear that "this was a mistake, this data should never have been collected".

Speaking to the Today programme he said they accept that there was "a failure of management within Google and we accept the responsibility for it".
