Rolls Royce has sacked five people at its Bristol office for using its corporate network for sending "grossly offensive" hardcore porn. The employees were given their marching orders a fortnight ago although their dismissals were subject to an independent appeal. All five failed to have their dismissals overturned at separate tribunals. Earlier this month, The Register reported how 14 people had been suspended at the defence and aerospace division of Roll Royce for sending email that contained "inappropriate material". Nine others have returned to work and have received written or verbal warnings about their conduct. They have been told that any further abuse of the company's email system will result in immediate dismissal. Martin Nield, head of communications at Rolls Royce said: "I can confirm that five people have been dismissed following an investigation by Rolls Royce. The material sent using our email system was grossly offensive pornography. "None of it was child pornography," he said. ®
