    Scotland Yard Detective Arrested

    Police gather to block off Great Scotland Yard. This was a small street running east from the northern end of Whitehall, parallel with Whitehall Place. The original Metropolitan Police Commissioner's office (No. 4 Whitehall Place) backed on to it, and A Division was based there in the back of the building. The name became colloquially attached to the headquarters of the Metropolitan Police, especially as additional buildings were acquired to house branches of the expanding force.

    Scotland Yard’s investigation into News of the World has claimed one of its own. A detective has been arrested and suspended from the force for leaking information about the investigation to journalists. “I made very clear when I took on this investigation the need for operational and information security,” said the commissioner in charge of the investigation. “It is hugely disappointing that this may not have been adhered to.” Scotland Yard also confirmed that it has arrested Dan Evans, a former NotW feature writer, on suspicion of hacking phones.
