Retired detective claims Damian Green's work computer had thousands of pornographic images found during 2008 police raid

The claims were made by Neil Lewis in an interview with the BBC about the findings of the raid nine years ago

A retired detective from Scotland Yard has alleged thousands of legal pornographic images were found on a computer used by Damian Green during a raid in 2008.

In an interview with the BBC, Neil Lewis said he had been shocked by the sheer volume of the material and didn’t have any doubt it had been seen by the Conservative MP.

He made it clear none of the images were extreme, but analysis suggested they had been viewed extensively over the course of a three-month period.

The former detective claimed the computer had been logged into under Damian Green’s name.

The allegations made by Lewis follow claims by Bob Quick, the former police chief – who Green said was “tainted and untrustworthy” after speaking publicly about what the raid turned up.  

The First Secretary of State is under investigation from the Cabinet office for alleged inappropriate conduct towards a female activist.

A representative made clear Green has denied the allegations of downloading or looking at porn on the computer but would not make further comment until the inquiry into his conduct had concluded.
