British police hold six in new hacking related arrests
British police investigating the hacking of mobile phones by Rupert Murdoch's tabloid to generate stories have arrested six people (including a woman) in raids across the country.
Police said in a statement that the six were held following a consultation with the Crown prosecution service, the department which prosecutes cases investigated by the police, but would not say whether the six had been arrested previously. They have been held on suspicion of "conspiring to pervert the course of justice”. The arrested woman was described as 43 with a home in Oxfordshire - Rebekah Brooks, a former editor of news of the world is 43 and has a home in Oxfordshire. Coincidence?
