The Metropolitan Police have arrested a woman in connection with their probe into alleged privacy breaches.

Scotland Yard said the 45-year old had been arrested at her south-west London home on Thursday morning and was being questioned at a London police station.

She is the 18th person arrested under Operation Tuleta, which is being run alongside two other investigations linked to phone hacking and corruption.

The Met said her arrest was not directly linked to a news group.

Scotland Yard said the woman had been detained on suspicion of conspiracy to commit offences under sections 1 and 3 of the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and sections 1 and 2 of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000.

A search has been carried out at her home.

Operation Tuleta is the Met's ongoing investigation into privacy breaches, including the alleged hacking of computer and mobile phones.

The inquiry is connected to Operation Weeting, the Met's investigation into phone hacking, and to Operation Elveden, which is looking at corrupt payments to public officials.
