Woman arrested in phone-hacking investigation
Source: The Guardian

Detectives investigating phone hacking at News International have arrested a 31-year-old woman.

The woman is believed to be Bethany Usher, a former journalist who had bylines in a number of national newspapers between 2005 and 2008.

Usher is now senior lecturer in media and journalism at Teesside University. The university said: "It would be inappropriate to comment on any ongoing police investigation."

Her Teesside University biography says she worked in the newspaper industry for seven years, working for two Sunday newspapers and becoming northern editor. She was named young journalist of the year in 2003.

2. The odd thing is
Edited on Wed Nov-30-11 01:16 PM by dipsydoodle
that despite the sheer number of arrests no charges have been brought to date and one person has been cleared.

Following yesterday's fuck up at the Levinson enquiry its now considered unlikely that either Coulson or Rebekah Brookes could be successfully procecuted in connection with these events.

the "fuck up" at the Levinson inquiry that you're speaking of?

I missed that thread or piece of news.
