Very sorry to hear this, yes that does sound like gross negligence on the part of the social worker dealing with the matter.
You should write or rather have your solicitor write a formal letter of complaint to the social services regarding the negligence of the worker in question and about the harm and distress caused by what they allowed your son to see and read.
Unfortunately until the police investigation is complete and the matter no further actioned, then it is unlikely that social services would allow that, until at least they have completed their investigation as well.
When electronic items are taken to be forensically examined it does take a long and covid 19 only making delays longer.
Finally once everything has been read, the police would carry out interviews based on their findings, then finally a file would be sent to the Crown Prosecution service to make a final decision as to whether in the case they feel the photos are simply family bath time photos of the children or something more sinister. Once the CPS have reviewed the file and made a decision it will be passed back to the police to either charge of take no further action.
