Police have arrested and questioned a Yorkshire man over allegations that he hacked into social networking website Facebook.

The unnamed 26-year-old from Yorkshire was arrested by police from the National Hi-Tech Crime Unit on Thursday. He was subsequently released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Details of the alleged crime, and how it was uncovered, are sketchy.

"While no user data was compromised, we have been working closely with Scotland Yard and the FBI as we take every attempt to hack our internal systems extremely seriously," a Facebook spokeswoman told The Yorkshire Post. "However, we have no further comment as this is an ongoing criminal investigation." ®
