Jordan has barred public sector workers from accessing more than 50 websites at work, after it was found they were wasting almost 3 hours a day online.

The 30-day study found that public servants visited 70 million websites at work, of which only 130,000 were relevant to their jobs.

The country’s Information Minister, Marwan Juma, told BBC News that the policy would “improve services”.

“We knew there was waste, but not to this extent,” he said.
