This could come back to bite him given that the policeman in question Bob Quick has denied any involvement in releasing the information. He should have lerned a lesson from Andrew Neil that wrongly slagging on police officers never ends well.
Yes I've seen a number of right-wingers claim that this is an abuse of police power.

Thousands of pornographic images on Damian Green’s computer, says detective
Pressure is mounting on Theresa May's effective deputy, Damian Green, after a detective who examined his computer said it contained thousands of pornographic images.

The former Scotland Yard officer Neil Lewis said the internet history on the device, which was seized in 2008 while Green was an opposition spokesman, showed pornography had been viewed extensively.
In his first broadcast interview about the investigation, Lewis was asked by the BBC how he could be sure it was Green, now the first secretary of state, who accessed the images. He said: "The computer was in Mr Green's office, on his desk, logged in, his account, his name.

"In between browsing pornography, he was sending emails from his account, his personal account, reading documents ... it was ridiculous to suggest anybody else could have done it."

I don't see how if this was a networked computer. I would have expected the server to block access to porn sites. Didn't someone here say he couldn't even access the Daily Mail at work?
By default, downloads and saved files are stored on the server not the computer's hard disk.

The police officer on Five Lice this morning specifically mentioned "thumbnails" and, although that was glossed over, it would suggest that they were in the browser cache. That said, I can't remember how (presumably) XP candled that back in 2007.

The thing is. These will be timestamped so any investigator will be able to compose a picture of the working day with all mails and docs being similarly timestamped.

Now, I am not going to make any judgement about anyone cracking one off at work, even if that is on the public shilling. In fact, I can see how such stress relief might be beneficial.

However, all the evidence suggests that he is a barefaced, lying toe rag. And that is simply not on.

EDIT: Captain Obvious. The Guardian have thought it through here;

Mr Lewis (someone who was trained in analysing computer use) was on the Today programme going through the alleged evidence. Pretty damning.

Green wasn't interviewed because he is currently under investigation for alleged knee groping but 'friends' have said that Mr Quick, who was the policeman who raided Green's office, held a grudge against Green. For balance R4 had Andrew Mitchell on to speak on Green's behalf and scornfully brushed off any suggestion of impropriety and that Green vehemently denies the accusations and is not a liar. Mitchell then had a go at the police. Yep, Mitchell, that's the same MP who lost a libel case against a policeman and effectively judged to be a liar. Balance.

It depends very much on the system installed and what is being asked of it. If you're in a place where you may have to genuinely research the darker side of the web, you will find that no filters will be installed. If you work on a system that has hot-desking, the files will be saved on a user profile server but also on a local user profile on the machine, just in case it cannot contact the server.

As for thumbnails - Windows will do that to picture files by default.

So he probably wasn't downloading and saving images, he was surfing sites of Gentleman's Interest?
I suspect many might find themselves potentially embarrassed in similar circumstances. Given the lack of allegations to the contrary I would imagine they are pretty standard stuff, nothing too dodgy.

Except to the Tories who find any form of interweb salaciousness to be a manifestation of mortal sin.
