Issue with Browsealoud software
Camden Council is one of thousands of organisations globally who use an accessibility tool called Browsealoud to enable blind and partially sighted people to access online information.

Browsealoud was taken offline on Sunday, as the company who produce the software learnt that it was being used to attempt to generate cryptocurrency.

This was an issue within the Browsealoud software, which is accessible via our site, rather than a hack on our council website itself. No customer data has been accessed or lost and Camden’s website continues to be secure. As soon as the software was taken down nationally it was no longer available via our website, but we still took steps to remove the links to the software from our site.

The company are keeping the software offline at present, and are carrying out

Mornington Crescent

Mornington Crescent is a London Underground station in Camden Town, named after the nearby street.

The station was opened as part of the original route of the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway (now the Charing Cross branch of the Northern Line) on 22 June 1907. After opening, it was little used, and for many years it was open only on weekdays, and before 1966 Edgware-bound trains passed through without stopping.

On 23 October 1992 the station was shut so that the then 85-year-old lifts could be replaced. The intention was to open it within one year. However, the state of neglect meant other work had to be completed, and the station was closed for most of the 1990s, amidst talk of it closing permanently.

However, a concerted campaign to reopen the station was launched, as the station is held in fond regard due to the popular BBC Radio 4 panel game I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, which frequently features the game round Mornington Crescent, a game which takes its name from the station.

Mornington Crescent, the game, consists of each panellist in turn announcing a landmark or street, most often a tube station on the London Underground system. The apparent aim is to be the first to announce "Mornington Crescent". Interspersed with the turns is humorous discussion amongst the panellists and host regarding the rules and legality of each move, as well as the strategy the panellists are using. Despite appearances, however, there are no rules to the game, and both the naming of stations and the specification of 'rules' are based on stream-of-consciousness association and improvisation. Thus the game is intentionally incomprehensible.

The station was reopened on 27 April 1998 by the regular cast of I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue (Humphrey Lyttelton, Barry Cryer, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden) and a memorial plaque to the late Willie Rushton, one of the longest-serving panelists, was installed at the station in 2002.

Since its reopening, the station has been open at the same times as most other stations, including weekends, in an attempt to relieve the pressure on the increasingly busy nearby Camden Town station.
