Released on bail, Del Naja is quoted as saying:
“I have never looked at child porn in my life. I would ask everyone not to judge me prematurely. I have total faith in the justice system”. Somewhat less surprisingly, police also seized a number of drugs thought to be ecstasy from the musician and sometime graffiti artist’s Bristol home.
The arrest, the result of an anonymous tip-off, follows the success of Massive Attack’s recent chart-topping album, 100th Window. The record takes its name from a cult work by Charles Jennings and Lori Fena – ironically, a warning about how hi-tech information can leave you open to exploitation from intruders.
