A prison governor was found dead yesterday less than a week after he was arrested in connection with allegations of child pornography.

He had been suspended from his job as a junior governor at Cardiff prison because pornography was discovered on a personal computer.

Gloucestershire police said a man had been found dead in a garage in the Forest of Dean and there were "no suspicious circumstances". The 54-year-old had been arrested by South Wales Police last Friday after "allegations concerning misuse of a personal computer".

He was interviewed at Cardiff's central police station and released on police bail pending further inquiries. The Prison Service later confirmed that the man had been arrested by the police "in connection with being found in possession of child pornography".
