People in the House of Commons made more than 250,000 attempts to get on Grindr in just one month.

A freedom of information request revealed that staff and visitors to the Government building have been trying to look at the gay dating site.

Accessing adult sites from the House of Commons’ internal computers is strictly banned, reports The Mirror.

But internet traffic over the last several months has shown visits were made on a number of such sites, including hardcore porn and escort pages.

Data, released to The Mirror, showed 272,000 attempts to access Grindr.

And 1,000 attempts were made to look at Tinder.

IT experts, who track the activity, also noted 3,000 attempts to view a hardcore gay porn site, along with hundreds of hits for other sites called Fab Swingers, Swinging Heaven, Gaydar and YouPorn.

A House of Commons spokesman told the vast majority of ‘attempts’ to access the sites are not deliberate.

He said: ‘The data shows ‘requests’ to access websites, not visits to them. Pop-up adverts make up a significant number of these ‘attempts’, which the computer user would not even have been aware of.

‘There are 8,500 computers on the Parliamentary Network, which are used by MPs, Peers, their staff and staff of both Houses. This data also covers personal devices used when logged on to Parliament’s guest Wi-Fi.’
