Corbyn has since rebutted the claims, saying he was offered a pair of seats with his wife when another couple were upgraded to First Class some 45 minutes after boarding.
But Virgin’s release of CCTV to evidence its admonishing of Corbyn has sparked questions over whether the move could have breached Data Protection Laws.
The Information Commissioners Office, which regulates the relevant law, said it was “aware of the issue” when contacted with complaints about Virgin’s CCTV release, and confirmed to The Huffington Post UK it was “making enquiries”.
“We are aware of the publication of CCTV images of Jeremy Corbyn and are making enquiries,” an ICO spokesperson said.
“All organisations have an obligation to comply with the Data Protection Act and must have legitimate grounds for processing the personal data they hold.
“Where there’s a suggestion that this hasn’t happened, the ICO has the power to investigate and can take enforcement action if necessary.”
