Flattley also texted a journalist to say where student fees protester Edward Woollard, who threw a fire extinguisher from Millbank Tower in 2010, had been taken.And he passed on information about a bomb scare in a branch of Accessorize in central London in 2011.
Sentencing Flattley for two years, Mr Justice Fulford told him his behaviour was "utterly reprehensible".
In my judgment this defendant was utterly indifferent as to whether his actions would harm particular police investigations and the course of justice and overall he did not care what effect his activities would have on the victims and others involved in the various cases about which he provided information.
Flattley, from Stockport in Cheshire, passed information to the Sun about a series of stories.
The total benefit to him was deemed to be £8,636.89, and information passed on included details linked to 19 active investigations, including;
- Checking out false rumours about then-England footballer John Terry and former MP Ann Widdecombe.
- Details about ex-footballer Paul Gascoigne being sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
- A car break-in suffered by royal Zara Phillips.
Flatley also sold information on which police station Arsenal footballer Jack Wilshere was taken to when he was arrested for assault.
