Three judges have been sacked for watching pornography on judicial IT equipment in their offices, the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office has said.

The material did not include images of children or any other illegal content, but the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice concluded the junior judges’ actions were “an inexcusable misuse of their judicial IT accounts
and wholly unacceptable conduct for a judicial office holder”.

District Judge Timothy Bowles, Immigration Judge Warren Grant and Deputy District Judge and Recorder Peter Bullock have been removed from office. A fourth judge, Recorder Andrew Maw, resigned before the official inquiry had completed its investigation.

District Judge Bowles worked at Romford County Court, Judge Bullock on the North Eastern Circuit, Judge Grant at the Immigration and Asylum Chamber, based at Taylor House in London, and Judge Maw at Lincoln County Court.
