London, Jan 17 (IANS) Fifty-five workers in government offices in Wales were caught viewing porn, a daily said Thursday.

Disciplinary action was taken against the officials, the Daily Mail reported.

Fifteen civil servants were disciplined for downloading images showing sexy or full nudity and another 31 were caught looking at topless pictures.

One senior manager was forced to resign after it was revealed that in 2008 he had been looking at child pornography.

In 2010, police were called in when another worker, who was sacked, looked at illegal "extreme porn", the daily said.

Lawyers have now recommended government offices should ban porn because it was distracting bureaucrats from work.

"More than one in four people have admitted to watching inappropriate content online in the workplace," employment solicitor Leanne Thomas said.
