Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

A FOR­MER mayor has been forced to make a red-faced apol­ogy af­ter us­ing his coun­cil lap­top to watch PORN.

Cllr Ray Burston ( above) ad­mit­ted us­ing the coun­cil com­puter to ac­cess X-rated when he worked from home.

The Con­ser­va­tive coun­cil­lor re­signed as shadow spokesman for the en­vi­ron­ment at a meet­ing of the full coun­cil in Dud­ley, West Mids this week.

Cllr Burston said: “While the im­ages that have been down­loaded are not of an il­le­gal na­ture, such ac­cess con­sti­tutes a clear breach of the coun­cil’s pro­to­cols gov­ern­ing use of its IT equip­ment.”

His porn site ac­cess came to light when the PC was be­ing re­paired.

He first served on Dud­ley Coun­cil from 1988 to 1996 and was re-elected in 2000.
