Barclays Bank is interrogating 50 staff at its Glasgow-based stockbroking operation after hardcore porn was found on computers. The images are thought to have been distributed by email, according to The Sun. A Barclays representative said: "We have strict rules on porn. Our disciplinary procedures will depend on the circumstances and the nature of the images found." Wonder if any employees will be sacked? If the bank is too strict, it could leave a big hole in Barclays Stockbrokers. With 700 workers, it operates the UK's biggest trading floor. ® Related Stories Smutty emailers sacked at New York Times Xerox fires 40 in porn site clampdown You can't get smuttier than a Kwik-Fit Fitter IT manager fired for lunchtime Web surfing Five sacked by Rolls Royce for porno emails Rolls-Royce emailers' jobs still in jeopardy
