The former Scotland Yard detective who examined Damian Green's work PC said today it contained thousands of pornographic images.
Neil Lewis, who seized the computer in 2008, says there is 'no doubt whatsoever' that the deputy prime minister was watching porn and it is 'ridiculous' to suggest otherwise.
Mr Lewis, who has since retired from the Met, said similar pornographic material was found on his laptop.
Mr Green, who was then a shadow immigration minister, said recently the claims were ‘false’ and ‘completely untrue’.
The detective says that on some days porn was browsed and open on the computer for hours and the way the computer was used made him think it was Mr Green doing it.
He told the BBC: 'The computer was in Mr Green's office, on his desk, logged in, his account, his name.
'In between browsing pornography, he was sending emails from his account, his personal account, reading documents... it was ridiculous to suggest anybody else could have done it'.
The police officer, who worked as a lead in digital crime after being a leading counter-terrorism officer, was working on Operation Miser in 2008.
This was an investigation into Home Office leaks that led to Mr Green's Commons office being searched by police and his computers being analysed.
