Phone hacking suspect freed on bail
Thursday 14 February 2013
A journalist arrested during a new police investigation into phone hacking has been released on bail, police said today.
The 39-year-old man was arrested in Greenwich over a suspected conspiracy that took place between around 2005 and 2006.
He will answer bail in May, pending further inquiries, Scotland Yard said.
The man was one of six former News of the World journalists arrested yesterday as part of a new line of inquiry that is separate from allegations under the existing Scotland Yard investigation into phone hacking called Operation Weeting.
They have all now been bailed until mid-May.
The six are understood to be Jules Stenson, Matt Nixson, Rav Singh, Jane Atkinson, Polly Graham and Rachel Richardson.
Ms Richardson and Ms Atkinson both work for The Sun.
