Damian Green says computer porn allegations are ‘political smears’

Theresa May’s most senior minister has denied a claim that police found pornography on his computer during a raid on his Westminster office in 2008.

First Secretary of State Damian Green said ex-police chief Bob Quick’s claims in the Sunday Times were “completely untrue” and “political smears”.
