Five people arrested on suspicion of phone hacking have been released on police bail, Scotland Yard has said.

The individuals had been interviewed at various police stations in London and Cheshire and searches were carried out at a number of addresses, the force added. A 39-year-old man arrested in Greenwich remains in police custody.

A Met spokesman said: "In due course officers will be making contact with people they believe have been victims of the suspected voicemail interceptions."
