Police investigating claims that Pippa Middleton's iCloud account was hacked have arrested a 35-year-old man in Northamptonshire, Scotland Yard said.

Pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge and her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are reportedly among 3,000 images taken from Kate's sister.

Police said that the man had been taken into custody at a south London police station after being arrested on suspicion of a Computer Misuse Act offence.

The Sun and Daily Mail newspapers reported that an anonymous seller had offered to sell them the pictures via encrypted messaging service WhatsApp.

The images reportedly include some of the royal children as well as wedding dresses and parties.

The Sun said it had been approached by someone using a pseudonym and asking for £50,000 within 48 hours.

A Suffolk man who has autism will be extradited from Britain to the US to stand trial over charges of cyber-hacking.

Lauri Love, who's 31 and from Stradishall near Haverhill, is alleged to have stolen huge amounts of data from US agencies including the federal Reserve, Nasa and the FBI.

Mr Love has said he holds little hope of justice and suggested a jail term in the US could cause his health to deteriorate and would lead to a mental breakdown or suicide.

He and his family wanted him to face justice in the UK rather than the US.

But this afternoon a judge has ruled Mr Love should be extradited
