News International's chief executive has expressed frustration with Scotland Yard after another Sun journalist was arrested by officers investigating alleged corrupt payments to officials.
In a strongly worded email to staff on Tuesday, chief executive Tom Mockridge complained that the Metropolitan police have ignored pleas from the company to ensure staff detained are treated in a dignified manner.
The 37 year old, male Sun journalist was arrested on Tuesday morning. A 29 year old male serving Sussex police officer was also arrested by detectives working for Operation Elveden. Both were taken to separate police stations and later bailed.
