Virgin Media said "no further emails are able to be sent in this manner" after some of its customers complained they were being spammed following a group email.
A Virgin Media spokesperson said:
A small proportion of our customers have received an email from one of our suppliers which, if they reply-all, it is sent to a wider group.
We’re investigating exactly what has happened ... We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
