How/Who to report a company selling your data?

Lets say for example..

that I have proof a bonafide company who has my personal data (signed up to purchase something previously) have been selling on my details despite me opting out of all third party communications.

I have signed up to not allow my data to be made available to third parties, so the original compnay either had a breach of that data or has deliberatley sold on my info against my wishes. I am getting non stop spam mail from casinos and porno/med firms sent to my email address used only once to register with the company in question.

Is there any comback or any authority I can report complain to?,

The Data Protection Act bans the selling on of data without prior permission from the customer and a fine of £5,000 can be imposed following a successful prosecution.
