A second teenage boy has been arrested in connection with the TalkTalk hack.

The 16-year-old boy, who is not being named, was arrested on suspicion of Computer Misuse Act offences after Metropolitan Police Cyber Crime Unit (MPCCU) raided a house in Feltham, London.

He has now been bailed, a Met police statement confirmed.

Officers also searched an address in Liverpool.

It is the second arrest made in connection to the telecommunications hack which saw the personal details of thousands of TalkTalk customers leaked online.

Police raided a home in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, and arrested a 15-year-old boy on Monday 26 October.

The Irish teenager was taken into custody and has now been granted bail for November.
