News Corp Journalist arrested by Scotland Yard

Various newspapers including, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, The telegraph and The Independent have reported about the recent arrest by Scotland Yard of Jamie Pyatt.

Pyatt, who has been a journalist at the News Corp tabloid 'The Sun' for a number of years has been accused of making "inappropriate payments" to police.

The enquiry is part of an ongoing probe by Scotland Yard into tabloid's seemingly increasing method of bribing police. However, this is the first time News Corp's 'The sun' has come under question. Pyatt has refused to comment and was released on bail on the 4th of November.
