News of the World Editor Arrested over Hacking

This is the continuing phone hacking scandal which is bringing journalism in Britain into disrepute. The Prime minister spoke about the scandal, admitting failings on his part.

Former News of the World editor Andy Coulson was the first to be arrested by officers investigating phone hacking and bribery allegations.

He left the News of the world in 2007 to become David Cameron's director of communications at number ten Downing Street.

He resigned earlier this year citing the phone hacking allegations which continued to haunt him, blaming them for distracting him from his Government role.

Opposition leader Ed Milliband attacked David Cameron for not saying sorry over the matter.

The newspaper's former royal reporter Clive Goodman was rearrested over hacking allegations. He was jailed for 4 months in 2007, as allegations first began to emerge, for intercepting voicemail messages of royal family members.

Police have also raided the offices of a second tabloid newspaper, the Daily Star, which Clive Goodman has been working for. This is reportedly in connection with the investigations taking place at the News of the World.

News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks addressed journalists at the newspaper, telling them that jobs would be found for all of them. She's been removed from her position in charge of investigating wrongdoing at the newspaper.

Scotland Yard are continuing to investigate allegations both of phone hacking and the potential that police officers were paid money for confidential information. With two arrests and a second tabloid newspaper's offices raided, it's looking unlikely that this scandal will end any time soon.
