Ex-Met chief threatens to sue Damian Green over computer porn lie claims

Updated: 

Former top policeman Bob Quick has called on First Secretary of State Damian Green publicly to retract "deeply hurtful" allegations that he lied about "vast amounts" of pornography discovered on the MP's personal computer.

In a statement issued by his solicitors, Mr Quick said he was considering legal action against Mr Green - effectively Prime Minister Theresa May's deputy.

The former Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner, who oversaw a raid on Mr Green's Westminster office in 2008, said everything he had said about the case was "accurate, in good faith, and in the firm belief that I have acted in the public interest".
