Officers arrested five men and one woman this morning in a coordinated swoop relating to the Met's probe into alleged phone-hacking at Rupert Murdoch-owned News International.

The six people, cuffed by Scotland Yard cops working on Operation Weeting, include a 43-year-old woman who was collared at her home address in Oxfordshire.

Sources alleged to The Telegraph that ex-NI chief and one-time News of the World editor Rebekah Brooks and her racehorse trainer husband Charlie Brooks are being questioned by police. This is yet to be confirmed.

Brooks, who closed down the Sunday tabloid at the centre of phone hacking and police bribery allegation last year, resigned from her job as News International CEO on 15 July 2011. Just two days later she was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications and of corruption allegations relating to illegal police payments.

Scotland Yard said this morning that its cops arrested all six individuals on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, contrary to the Criminal Law Act 1977.

A number of addresses are being searched by police officers.

The five men cuffed by cops in Oxfordshire, Hampshire, London and Hertfordshire this morning are aged between 38 and 49. ®
