A serving Metropolitan Police officer and a 48-year-old woman were arrested at their Surrey home this morning as part of the Scotland Yard’s investigation into alleged corrupt payments to public officials, the force has said.

Officers detained the woman and the 47-year-old male officer - Operation Elveden’s 75th and 76th arrests - at around 6am on suspicion of misconduct in public office and suspected conspiracy to cause misconduct in public office.

A Metropolitan Police statement said the pair were being interviewed at police stations in Surrey.

The investigation is being run alongside two other Met inquiries - Operation Weeting, which is looking at alleged phone hacking, and Operation Tuleta, which focuses on computer hacking and other alleged privacy breaches.
