Two owners of a marketing company have been fined a total of £440,000 after millions of unlawful spam texts were sent out over the last three years, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has said.

The ICO said the penalty follows an 18-month investigation into Tetrus Telecoms, which is jointly owned by Christopher Niebel and Gary McNeish.
