A journalist at the Sun has been arrested in north London by police from Scotland Yard's Operation Tuleta, which is investigating breaches of privacy including computer hacking.

He is understood to be Rhodri Phillips, a news reporter at the paper.

The Metropolitan police said the man was held at his home at 6.30am on Thursday, but did not give his age or any detail of offences the man is suspected of committing.

News International chief executive Tom Mockridge confirmed in an email to staff that he was "afraid that another of our journalists from the Sun has been arrested this morning".

Scotland Yard is expected to provide further detail of the arrest later on Thursday.

The force said in a statement: "For operational reasons we are not providing further details of this arrest at this time but will release more information in due course."

The man is the seventh person to be held by the Metropolitan police under Operation Tuleta, which was launched in July last year as a splinter investigation to the probe into phone hacking.

The Met has 19 officers working on Operation Tuleta, compared with 96 officers officers and civilian personnel on Operation Weeting and 70 on Operation Elveden, the investigation into payments by journalists to police and public officials.

Scotland Yard described the Tuleta probe as "an investigation into a number of allegations referring to breaches of privacy which fall outside the remit of Operation Weeting. This includes computer hacking."

Operation Tuleta is investigating the use of so-called "trojan" emails which allow a hacker to take over a target's computer.

Here is one of his articles on Raymond Hewlett.....

IMO should have been arrested and locked up for writing that article alone.
