If you have ever wondered what council staff spend their time doing, we may have some answers.

Dartford Council politely told us what employees have been up to on their computers during the day.

Following a freedom of information request, we have seen what the top 100 websites visited on the council server at Dartford Council have been during office hours of 9-5.

With a lot of not-so-interesting website domains on the list, we have picked out some of the highlights.

Coming in at the top of the list of top 100 website domains visited during office hours was a Daily Mail website, which was closely followed by the BBC’s website which was listed as fourth.

Notably, Bing.com was more popular than Google on the Council server, coming in a solid sixth place.

It must have been tennis season when they put this list together as well, as the Wimbledon website was listed as 16.

News Shopper's website was 23rd most visited website - so thanks for coming to us for your local news, council staff.

Workers could be looking to relocate as Right Move popped up on the list at number 37.

The Telegraph was listed at 77, with Argos coming in surprisingly high at 84.

Listed at number 100 on the list was a website domain called Marine Traffic, a comprehensive maritime database with more than six million monthly users, with at least one at the council apparently.

It is worth noting at this point that some websites have an auto-refresh function that may count as another visit. 

A spokesman for Dartford Council said it expects staff to use common sense with personal use of the internet.

The spokesman said: “In common with lots of organisations, many council staff have internet access on their devices and it has significant professional uses in providing the services we do.

“In terms of personal use we try to take a common-sense approach and expect colleagues to act responsibly and ensure that use of the internet does not impact on their working day or duties.

“I don’t think many would be surprised to learn that the Council does impose some limits on the sites and content available to users and this helps ensure our systems and users remain secure, safe and productive.”
