    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.
