A 52-year-old man has been arrested as part of the long-running investigation into alleged corruption at Cleveland Police.

The man was held at an address in Pembrokeshire, Wales, early on Tuesday on suspicion of fraud, corruption and money laundering by officers from Warwickshire Police.

A number of vehicles and two properties are being searched in the area.

Officers working on Operation Sacristy have made 10 arrests since May 2011.

Nine people remain on bail after the force's suspended deputy chief constable Derek Bonnard was told he would not face criminal charges.

A team led by Keith Bristow, the director of the National Crime Agency, is investigating individuals with current and past associations with Cleveland Police Authority.
