A 60-year-old man was arrested this morning at his home in South West London on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications relating to Scotland Yard's probe of alleged phone hacking.
Operation Weeting officers are currently questioning the man at a South London cop shop.
The identity of the latest arrest in the phone-hacking scandal that has engulfed Rupert Murdoch's newspaper business in Blighty was not revealed.
In July this year, Murdoch's one-time right-hand woman Rebekah Brooks, and Prime Minister David Cameron's ex-spin chief Andy Coulson, were charged and told they face "a realistic prospect of conviction" of alleged phone-hacking offences as part of the Op Weeting investigation. ®
