Music star quizzed over porn

A member of music group Massive Attack has been questioned by police over internet porn allegations.

Robert Del Naja, known as 3D, has been bailed by officers working on Operation Ore, the national crackdown on child porn.

Detectives seized computer equipment and a quantity of suspected drugs during a raid in Bristol on Tuesday.

Mr Del Naja has denied viewing child pornography.

He said: "I have never looked at child pornography in my life. I am fully co-operating with the police. I have total faith in the justice system."

A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Police said: "A man in his 30s from Bristol was arrested in connection with allegations of the possession of class A drugs and internet porn offences."

The arrest was made under the force's Operation Ricochet, which is part of Operation Ore.

Massive Attack rose to fame in the early 1990s with tracks such as Unfinished Sympathy and Safe From Harm.

They are currently in the charts with their fourth album 100th Window.

The drugs part is probably no big shock to anyone. But yes, it seems to be the season for big-name arrests...
