Child pornography

Phillip Lyon was a senior aide at the House of Commons who was found guilty of using his home computer to collect more than 1,000 images of children, and probably also of creating child pornographic images[2].


The BBC reported that he "was discovered by chance when an IT consultant came to repair another clerk's computer at the Commons and opened a file showing "something terribly wrong".[3][4]

Another report stated that he was arrested in April after a tip-off to the Metropolitan Police vice squad from National Crime Squad police.[2]

In August 2003, he was found guilty and sentenced to 12 months.[3]
