AN eleventh man was arrested yesterday as part of the phone hacking investigation into the News of the World.

Former managing editor Stuart Kuttner, 71, has previously admitted approving a “relatively small but regrettable number of false cash payments” to private investigator Glenn Mulcaire. The arrest came as pressure continued to rise on rival newspaper publisher Trinity Mirror, with claims a Sunday Mirror journalist testified under oath to bribing a policeman.

A lawyer for Tim Blackstone – the brother of former Labour minister Tessa Blackstone – alleged the reporter told the court he paid £50 to an unnamed policeman for a tip about an incident at the PR executive’s house in 2000. It is understood no transcripts exist. Trinity Mirror declined to comment. Meanwhile Jonathan May-Bowles, the man who threw a foam pie at Rupert Murdoch, was jailed for six weeks.
