A man arrested as part of Scotland Yard’s inquiry into phone hacking is Glenn Mulcaire, the BBC understands.

He was held on suspicion of conspiracy to hack voicemail messages and perverting the course of justice.

The private investigator was arrested on Wednesday morning and held at a London police station but later bailed.

The Met Police’s Operation Weeting is investigating hacking of mobile phone voicemails of public figures by the now-defunct News of the World paper.

The phone-hacking investigation is working its way through about 300 million emails from News International.

Operation Weeting is looking into phone hacking, computer misuse is being investigated by Operation Tuleta and corruption falls under the remit of Operation Elveden.

Mr Mulcaire is the 20th person to be arrested as part of the police’s investigations into phone hacking, computer misuse and corruption. He was released on bail to a date in late March pending further investigation, police said.

All but one of the 20 remain under investigation.

Mr Mulcaire was jailed for six months in January 2007 after admitting intercepting voicemails on phones belonging to aides of the Royal Family, including messages left by Prince William.

He was also convicted of intercepting messages of public figures including publicist Max Clifford, Lib Dem MP Simon Hughes and the model, Elle MacPherson.

In July this year, Mr Mulcaire issued a statement through his lawyers apologising to those “hurt and affected” by his actions.

The statement said that having been employed by the News of the World as a private investigator from 2002 he had “acted on the instructions of others”.

Last month, in an another statement issued by his lawyer, Mr Mulcaire said he did not delete messages on a mobile phone belonging to the murdered schoolgirl, Milly Dowler and “had no reason to do so”.

Earlier, Scotland Yard said a 41-year-old man had been arrested in London in connection with phone hacking and perverting the course of justice.

Former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks and ex-Downing Street communications chief Andy Coulson are among those who have already been arrested as part of the inquiry.

The scandal has led Met Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson and Assistant Commissioner John Yates to resign, and the NoW to close down after 168 years.

Operation Weeting is now investigating claims of more widespread phone hacking.

Some 1,800 people have come forward to express fears that they may have been hacked.

Glenn Mulcaire
8 July 2011   11:01 ET 

“Trigger” to friends in his former life as a striker at AFC Wimbledon, and to everyone else the private investigator turned phone hacker who brought down the News of the World (NoW). Who is Glenn Mulcaire?

Like the way he practised the “dark arts” in Fleet Street to unearth mobile phone details for the News of the World, Glenn Mulcaire lives his life in the shadows.

Until earlier this week, when he broke his silence to apologise to those hurt or upset by his activities, he has remained out of the public glare while the scandal snowballed around him.

The father-of-five said despite everything written about him, he had chosen never to respond publicly, until now.

It was the ever-more sinister nature of recent allegations against him that, in part, led him to issue his public apology.

Among other things, he is accused of intercepting messages left by relatives for murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler while she was missing.

And he is alleged to have had the phone numbers of relatives of service personnel killed in Iraq and Afghanistan in his files.

While making no direct reference to the hacking of Milly’s phone, Mulcaire said he never meant to interfere with any police inquiry.

“I want to apologise to anybody who was hurt or upset by what I have done,” he said.

“I’ve been to court. I’ve pleaded guilty. And I’ve gone to prison and been punished. I still face the possibility of further criminal prosecution.”

He added that there was “relentless pressure” and “constant demand” for results while working for the NoW.

“I knew what we did pushed the limits ethically. But, at the time, I didn’t understand that I had broken the law at all.”

‘Reformed character’He also – ironically given his track record – asked for privacy for his wife and children.

“I know I have brought the vilification I am experiencing upon myself, but I do ask media to leave my family and my children, who are all blameless, alone,” he said.

Mulcaire, 40, from Sutton in Surrey, is no stranger to double standards.

It was while running a company – Nine Consultancy – that offered a service protecting clients from media intrusion that he first caught the eye of the NoW.

The former private investigator says he wants to put the scandal behind him

He had a year’s contract with the Sunday paper for “research and information services” worth £104,988 and also received £12,300 in cash from the tabloid.

In reality, he was providing the newspaper with the mobile phone details of the rich, powerful and famous and was eventually arrested in August 2006.

Mulcaire and then NoW royal editor Clive Goodman were jailed for six months and four months respectively in January 2007 after admitting intercepting voicemail messages on royal aides’ phones, including some left by Prince William.

Mulcaire was also convicted of intercepting the messages of public figures including publicist Max Clifford, Lib Dem MP Simon Hughes and actress Elle MacPherson.

To his friends and fellow sportsmen at AFC Wimbledon, where Mulcaire played five years earlier, some may wonder why he did not stick to football.

As a striker for the lower league club founded in the aftermath of Wimbledon FC’s move to Milton Keynes, Mulcaire struck his way into the club’s history books.

His left-foot volley from outside the area in a friendly against Bromley in 2002 was the club’s first ever goal.

AFC Wimbledon’s chief executive, Erik Samuelson, 63, recalled: “He was long, lean and rangy, never a physical or muscular player and with no great pace, but he had a good shot on him and a good eye for the goal.”

He said “Trigger” played for the first team in 2002 on a number of occasions, but was never a first team regular and soon faded into the background.

“He had a terrific shot on him though, there’s no question about that,” he added.

In February this year, Mulcaire was banned from driving for a year and fined £1,000 at Sutton Magistrates’ Court after admitting a drink-driving charge.

He told the court he had driven a quarter of a mile from a local pub to his home in Cheam late one evening because his eldest daughter had a medical emergency.

Speaking before the hearing, he told reporters he was a “reformed character” determined to put the hacking scandal behind him.

With the News of the World closing, two new inquiries announced, fresh arrests and almost daily developments, it remains to be seen whether he will get his wish.
