Guards at the prison where Gary Glitter is being held have seized more than 100 PlayStations amid fears they are being used to view child porn online or even contact kids, it has been claimed.

The sweep of cells was taken at The Verne prison, near Portland, Dorset, where inmates are all sex offenders.

There is concern that the Sony PlayStations have been used for trading child porn.

Sources for the Sun newspaper have alleged that sex offenders had found a way to sneak USB sticks, with access to the internet, into the prison.

Access to the internet is banned in UK prisons.

A source said yesterday: “The officers swept through the cells taking every one.

“The devices will now be examined and any concerns passed to police.

“The suggestion is that the inmates may have been using the internet to trade inappropriate content, messages or even pictures relating to children.”

Tory MP Nigel Mills called said it is a “disgrace” if the illegal activity had been taking place and has called for a police investigation.

Former pop star Glitter, 77, is not believed to have been involved in the scam.

He was jailed in 2015 for sex attacks on young girls and had been expected to spend the rest of his life in prison but it is reported that having moved to The Verne, he could be eligible for release by 2023.
