HSBC apologises for embarrassing blunder

Shock

Red faces all round!

Banking giant HSBC apologised for a website blunder on a section of its Hong Kong website which directed unwitting visitors to an adult site, reports said Tuesday.

MSN reports that in a statement published on Monday, the bank said the link to the external website had been removed from its community projects page and made an apology.

'HSBC would like to apologise to the public for any inconvenience caused', it said in the statement.

Video seen on the Apple Daily newspaper website showed the www.hsbc.com.hk website linking to a page that showed suggestive pictures of scantily clad women.

It appears to have been a lapsed URL picked up by an enterprising adult website owner that was the cause of the embarrassment.
