HACKGATE DAY 159: Woman arrested about Newscorp hacking, Balls calls in police about Telegraph series.

It is slowly dawning on the British public that privacy invasion is a much bigger subject than the criminals at the News of the World. This morning’s arrest in West Yorkshire is, I’m told, of a hacking ‘intermediary’ not a Screws journalist – but it is to do with Sue Akers’ Operation Weeting. So with Jeremy ‘Culcha’ Hunt set next week to give Rupert the go-ahead to ply his trade on a bigger canvas, there could be a fly in his ointment by this evening. We shall see.
