    It is alleged that porn was found when his offices were raided by counter terrorism officers.

    Counter-terrorist officers raided Damian Green's office in 2009, back when he was the shadow immigration minister. The raid was over his use of leaks from the t
    hen Labour government to try undermine Britain's first woman Home Secretary, leaks which a Home Office employee said would expose the chaos of Labour's immigration policy.

    So the story isn't as exciting as it originally sounded!

    But I did find it interesting that anti-terror police were being utilised in suc
    h a way.

    There's something very smelly about this scandal. Sitting on this kind of allegation for almost 10 years and releasing it at a time most likely to cause damage is very dodgy.

    Counter terrorism police were probably used due to the initial search being in relation to leaking classified information, including those protectively marked secret.

    The legal definition of downloaded files probably encompasses streaming when the files are saved locally (in the browser cache, say).

    Wouldn't those be deleted regularly?

    Yes. But definitely not irretrievably. Most deleted files are very easy to retrieve afterwards, although they will gradually be lost over time as they are overwritten by new files. Exceptions being files written to RAM.

    If counter-terrorism police were involved, I imagine they were going through his hard drive pretty thoroughly.

    Besides, they don't always need the files themselves, only evidence that they existed.
