A 55-year-old man arrested in Cardiff by police investigating the hacking of computers has been released on bail.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police's Operation Tuleta, which is linked to the phone-hacking investigation, arrested the man on Friday morning.

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

He has been bailed until October pending further enquiries.

Police said the arrest - the sixth 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.

So far 24 people have been arrested as part of the phone-hacking inquiry and another 41 as part of Operation Elveden, a related investigation into alleged corrupt payments to officials.
