Education Secretary Justine Greening was left a bit thrown when Andrew Marr asked her point-blank about watching porn at work.

Greening had appeared on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show to discuss the mass resignations of Theresa May’s social mobility team, as well as the Irish border after Brexit.

But just before the end of the interview Marr changed direction, asking her: ‘Moving on to another big story we haven’t talked about – is it ever OK to watch porn at work?’

A surprised Greening took a few seconds, before saying that there were ‘clear laws… and I think it is something most employers would say it wasn’t acceptable’.

The question comes two days after police chiefs said they found ‘thousands’ of porn images on deputy PM Damien Green’s computer.

Marr went on to ask Greening if she thought there was a ‘personal vendetta’ among police officers against Green.

Greening said she wouldn’t step into the debate, but that there should be ‘high standards in public life’.

Former Scotland Yard officer Neil Lewis claimed that the internet history on a seized from Green in 2008, while he was an opposition spokesman, showed that porn had been viewed extensively.

Lewis, who retired from the Met Police in 2014, said the device contained thousands of thumbnail images of legal porn.

He now faces a Scotland Yard investigation into his decision to go public with the findings, with the Met saying: ‘Confidential information gathered during a police inquiry should not be made public.’
