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.
Every report I've seen's gone out of its way to stress that none of the pornography was legal.

If it is illegal, that puts a new complexion on it. If he was just perving at pictures of Lucy Pinder, or whoever, and wasting time when he could be ruining the country, that's one thing, but illegal stuff is a different kettle of fish altogether.

That's likely. He also may not have known that the images got downloaded into the cache when he denied having them before.

Rees-Mogg is on BBC2, frantically blaming the Labour government for this.
Planning to sort out the mess the Labour government was preparing to leave the Tories, a chap should be allowed the occasional buff of the happy lamp to ease the stress.

The police officer is now being investigated for potentially leaking confidential information, according to the BBC.
Pains me as it does to defend Green, good. Putting aside the HR implications, this is a misuse of private information / breach of data protection matter. It's years since Green's arrest on an unrelated matter, over which he was subsequently cleared. If sensitive information was discovered during that investigation, so long as it was legal, the police have no business making it public.
