There were further arrests last week in connection to the illegal payments and phone hacking scandal that has rocked the British political establishment.
To date police operations had mainly revolved around the News International media empire of Rupert Murdoch. The arrest of an employee from rival Trinity group of newspapers signals a widening of police investigations.
On Wednesday morning former Daily Mirror journalist Greig Box-Turnbull, 37, who worked for Trinity Mirror until taking voluntary redundancy in March, was arrested. Also arrested were a 46-year-old prison worker and a 50-year-old woman, on suspicion of corruption, conspiracy to commit bribery and conspiracy to cause misconduct in a public office.
