Metropolitan police officers working for Operating Weeting have arrested a woman in West Yorkshire.

The investigation into alleged voicemail hacking by the News of the World was reopened earlier this year after the Met said it received significant new information.

The 39-year-old woman was arrested at a residential address in West Yorkshire at 6.55 this morning. She is being interviewed at a nearby police station on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications, contrary to Section 1 (1) of the Criminal Law Act 1977.

The Met statement said it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.

The Guardian reports she is not a reporter.

The original investigation led to prison sentences for two men found guilty of intercepting voicemails. ®
