The Metropolitan police have arrested another man as part of its ongoing investigation into alleged phone-hacking at axed Sunday tabloid News of the World.

"On Thursday, 18 August, officers from Operation Weeting arrested a man [H], aged 38, on suspicion of conspiring to unlawfully intercept voicemails contrary to section 1(1) Criminal Law Act 1977," said Scotland Yard in a brief statement this morning.

The unnamed man was cuffed by appointment at a London police station, where he remains in custody.

This arrest brings the total number of people allegedly associated with the NotW phone-hacking scandal to 13.

A Guardian report suggest that James Desborough, who joined the tabloid as a showbiz reporter in 2005 before being promoted to Hollywood editor in 2009, is the man currently being quizzed by police. ®
