A 35-year-old man from Northamptonshire arrested by police investigating claims that Pippa Middleton's iCloud account was hacked has been bailed.

He was picked up on on Saturday evening on suspicion of a Computer Misuse Act offence but he has since been released pending further inquiries, Scotland Yard said.

Pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge and her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are reportedly among 3,000 images taken from Kate's sister.

Private photographs were said to have been offered to The Sun and Daily Mail newspapers via encrypted messaging service WhatsApp.
