Phone hacking: former News of the World head of legal arrested

Tom Crone understood to have been arrested by by detectives from Scotland Yard's Operation Weeting

Lisa O'Carroll and Josh Halliday, Thursday 30 August 2012 11.48 BST

A 60-year-old man, understood to be former News of the World head of legal Tom Crone, has been arrested by Metropolitan police detectives investigating phone hacking.

Crone was arrested at his home address in south-west London on Thursday morning on suspicion of conspiracy to intercept communications.

It is understood that the arrest followed the passing of information from News International's management and standards committee and Crone had no prior notice that the police were to make the arrest.

He is the 25th person arrested as part of the Operation Weeting investigation into phone hacking.

The Met said the man was being questioned at a south London police station on Thursday morning.

He is the second to be arrested under Operation Weeting since the Crown Prosecution Service brought phone-hacking charges against several former News of the World journalists, including ex-chief executive Rebekah Brooks and former editor Andy Coulson, earlier this month.

The force said in a statement: "Officers from Operation Weeting, the MPS inquiry into the hacking of telephone voicemail boxes, arrested a man in south-west London this morning, Thursday 30 August.

"The 60-year-old man was arrested at his home address at approximately 06.45 hrs this morning on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications contrary to section 1 of the Criminal Law Act 1977. He is being interviewed at a south London police station."

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
