(LONDON, ENGLAND) – Detectives on Operation Weeting have identified and are investigating a suspected conspiracy to intercept telephone voicemails at Mirror Group Newspapers.

This conspiracy is being treated as a separate conspiracy to the two being investigated at the now defunct News of the World newspaper.

As part of the inquiry four people were arrested at separate addresses, at approximately 6:00 am on 14 March, on suspicion of conspiracy to intercept telephone communications contrary to the Criminal Law Act 1997. All of them are journalists or former journalists on Mirror Group Newspaper titles.

They are being interviewed at various police stations in London and searches are being carried out at a number of addresses.
