A Dundee Tesco call centre worker emailed himself copies of customer details from the supermarket giant's database, a court heard.

Thomas Wengierow admitted a charge under the Data Protection Act committed when he worked at the company's Baird Avenue centre.

The court heard Wengierow "knowingly or recklessly obtained or disclosed" personal data from a Tesco database.

He then copied the details into an email and sent it to himself.

Wengierow, 47, of Pitalpin Court, Dundee, pleaded guilty to a charge under the Data Protection Act.

His solicitor David Duncan said his client was not presently in the country but would return for a future sentencing hearing.

Sheriff Alastair Carmichael deferred sentence until next month for his personal appearance.
