A 44-year-old man has been arrested and bailed by police investigating alleged breaches of privacy, police said.

Scotland Yard said the man was held by officers from Operation Tuleta at a business premises in Suffolk at about 10:15 BST.

He was arrested on suspicion of committing offences under the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act.

He has been released on bail to return to a London police station in November.

Police said the arrest - the 10th by Operation Tuleta detectives - "was not directly linked to any news organisation or the activities of journalists".

Operation Tuleta is investigating allegations of computers being hacked to obtain private information.

It is linked to the Met's investigation into phone hacking, Operation Weeting, and running alongside Operation Elveden, which is looking at corrupt payments by journalists to public officials.
