Jeremy Colman, the ex-Auditor General for Wales, has been arrested on suspicion of possessing indecent images.

Colman quit his £170,000 a year job last week "following an internal review around matters of personal conduct". Reports suggested IT staff had found pornographic material on his laptop.

South Wales Police told the BBC that it was called in the following day.

Colman, 61, of Dinas-Powys, has been bailed until 3 March. He ran the Welsh spending watchdog for five years. ®
