Essex: Five Bailed In Hacking Probe

Four senior Sun journalists and a Metropolitan Police officer arrested over alleged illegal police payments have been bailed by detectives.

It's after homes were raided by officers in Essex and London yesterday morning (Saturday January 28th).

Senior Sun employees Chris Pharo, 42, and Mike Sullivan along with former executives Fergus Shanahan, 57, and Graham Dudman, were named by sources as suspects facing corruption allegations.

Scotland Yard confirmed five men detained yesterday by officers from Operation Elveden, launched following the phone hacking scandal, had been released pending further inquiries.
