A journalist from The Sun newspaper was arrested today by police investigating alleged criminal breaches of privacy.

The man was held at his home in north London this morning by officers from Operation Tuleta, which is investigating alleged computer hacking and wider privacy offences.

He is the seventh person to be arrested as part of the inquiry, which operates in conjunction with the phone-hacking investigation.

A spokeswoman from News International said: “We can confirm a journalist from The Sun was arrested this morning.”

Scotland Yard said they were releasing no more details for “operational reasons”.

So far, 24 people have been arrested as part of the phone-hacking inquiry, Operation Weeting, and 41 as part of an investigation into alleged corrupt payments to officials, Operation Elveden.
