Three judges in the United Kingdom have been fired for viewing pornographic material using their official IT accounts, British media reported on Tuesday, quoting the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office.

A spokesman for the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office said the pornography was not illegal in content.

The Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice described the use of the judges’ official accounts to view pornography as “inexcusable” and "wholly unacceptable conduct for a judicial office holder."

According to British media, a fourth judge resigned before the official inquiry concluded.
