A local politician in the central Swedish town of Ludvika has admitted surfing for porn at work and forwarding pictures via email.

The man, a senior municipal councillor who also represented trade unions in his workplace, has now been forced to leave his union position. His party said that it would consider what has happened and make a decision on the possible consequences.

The politician said he did not consider the porn surfing to be a serious matter, arguing that his workplace had a macho atmosphere and it was quite normal to send photos to each other.
