Met chief knew of Damian Green computer porn find

Britain’s most senior police officer was told that pornography had been discovered on the parliamentary computers of Damian Green during an inquiry in 2008 into government leaks, The Sunday Times can reveal.

Sir Paul Stephenson, then Metropolitan police commissioner, was informed that detectives had found pornographic material on a work computer seized when Green was a shadow minister.

Green’s career now lies in the balance after he said that claims in The Sunday Times last week by Bob Quick, a senior former police chief, were “completely untrue” and “false, disreputable smears”.

The disclosure that the head of Scotland Yard was informed confirms that another officer, more senior than Quick, was aware of the alleged discovery.

Police chief ‘was told of Damian Green pornography claims’

A former Scotland Yard chief was aware pornography had allegedly been found on Damian Green’s computer during a 2008-9 police probe, he has told the BBC.

Sir Paul Stephenson, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner between 2009-11, said he was briefed about the claims but regarded them as a “side issue”.

The allegations were first made public last week by former Met Assistant Commissioner, Bob Quick.

First Secretary of State Mr Green said the claims were a “political smear”.

Mr Green, who is Prime Minister Theresa May’s second-in-command, said the police never told him at the time that any improper material had been found on a parliamentary computer.

Ex-Scotland Yard chief ‘knew of claims pornography was found on Damian Green’s Parliamentary computer’

A former head of Scotland Yard knew of allegations that pornography had been found on one of Damian Green’s parliamentary computers during a 2008 police investigation into leaks, it has been reported.

Sir Paul Stephenson, who was Metropolitan Police Commissioner between 2009 and 2011, told the BBC that the alleged discovery “wasn’t relevant” to the criminal probe that involved a search of Mr Green’s Commons office when he was a shadow minister.

A Whitehall inquiry into the First Secretary of State, effectively the Prime Minister’s deputy, was widened last week after the Sunday Times reported that a statement prepared by ex-Met assistant commissioner Bob Quick for a separate review had discussed the alleged discovery.
