Scotland Yard officers investigating alleged phone-hacking at the now defunct tabloid the News of the World arrested a 35-year-old man in an early morning pounce on his home today (7 September).
Cops took the unnamed man into custody at a north London police station on suspicion of conspiracy to intercept voicemail messages, contrary to the 1977 Criminal Law Act.
The arrest at 5:55am this morning was uncharacteristic for Operation Weeting.
Many of the other people brought in for questioning in relation to alleged illegal phone hacking practices at the NotW have come in by appointment. ®
