#Leveson Inquiry : 32 Year Old Woman Arrested In Probe Into Illegal Payments.

Officers working on Operation Elveden, the investigation into allegations of inappropriate payments to police, have today (1 March) arrested a 32-year-old woman.

Police say the arrest was "by appointment" and made "on suspicion of corruption under the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906 and aiding and abetting misconduct in a public office (contrary to common law) and conspiracy in relation to both offences".

The woman is currently in custody at a south London police station.

This is the 23rd arrest as part of Operation Elveden, the operation set up after News International provided documents to the Operation Weeting probe, which is investigating
phone hacking.
