Three judges who allegedly viewed pornography on official IT equipment at work have been sacked and a fourth has resigned, the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office (JCIO) has said.

The body has announced that District Judge Timothy Bowles, Immigration Judge Warren Grant and deputy district judge and Recorder Peter Bullock have been removed from judicial office. Recorder Andrew Maw resigned before the disciplinary process ended.

The material did not involve children or any other illegal content, but viewing it at work was "wholly unacceptable", the JCIO said in a statement.
