Britain’s top cop refuses to say whether or not ‘extreme porn’ was found on deputy PM Damian Green’s computer

BRITAIN’s top cop has refused to say whether or not “extreme” pornography was found on the computer of senior Cabinet minister Damian Green.

The Met’s chief Cressida Dick would not discuss the leaked statement from a 2008 investigation, which claimed the material was on a device seized by police from his House of Commons office.

The First Secretary of State has strenuously denied the allegations and accused former assistant commissioner Bob Quick, who prepared the statement, of being a “tainted and untrustworthy source”.

But it will form part of a Cabinet Office inquiry into Mr Green, Theresa May’s de-fact deputy, on top of previous claims he behaved inappropriately to a young journalist.

Today Ms Dick, the most senior office in the country, was asked about it as she appeared before MPs on the home affairs select committee.

But she refused to say if the claims were true of false, telling chairwoman Yvette Cooper: “I am not going to comment on an apparently or allegedly leaked set of information from a confidential investigation.

“And in not comment I’m absolutely not therefore either confirming or denying what may or may not have been uncovered in that investigation.

“What I can say is that if the Metropolitan Police or indeed myself can assist a Cabinet Office inquiry we would want to do so and we would seek to do so.”

She went on to talk about how important it is that confidential information in inquiries is kept confidential, but added: “I am not commenting on what anything AC Quick may or may not have done – because I don’t know.”

Pressed again by Labour MP Ms Cooper, the commissioner replied: “I don’t want to comment any further.

“At the moment there is a huge amount to speculation and misinformation and I think we should go step by step.”

Her appearance comes as Sue Gray, Whitehall’s head of propriety and ethics, is continuing a probe into Mr Green’s actions towards Kate Maltby, who accused him of touching her leg under a pub table, and of sending inappropriate text messages.

And The Sun revealed yesterday that the porn allegedly found on his computer was extreme enough for police to ask the CPS to decide whether to charge him.

It has led to him coming under pressure to stand down from the Cabinet while the investigation is underway, after Sir Michael Fallon resigned over allegations about him.
