Tulisa arrest follows newspaper allegations

Today’s arrest of former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos comes after the Metropolitan Police said its officers were "considering" information following an article in the Sun on Sunday.

The newspaper suggested Contostavlos had acted as a go-between in a drug deal by introducing a journalist to an alleged supplier.

The report suggested half an ounce of cocaine changed hands as a result of the deal conducted at London's Dorchester Hotel.
