A senior official is understood to be among four Highland Council employees who have been disciplined after routine checks found that workers have been downloading pornography from the internet.

The Scotsman (24 June, p10) reported that two of the workers have since resigned and the other two have been disciplined. One of those who resigned is expected to face criminal charges.

A spokesman said: 'It came to our attention that four employees were using the computers for less than pure reasons. This was also being done during council time which flies in the face of regulation.

'It appears that the employees had been accessing one particular internet site where pornographic material was available. We have now taken steps to ensure that this can never happen again.'
