    "[James] Desborough is the first of the News of the World staff members to be arrested and then told he faces no further action.

    Two others – Bethany Usher, a former freelance journalist who has worked on some News of the World stories and is now a lecturer in Teeside, and Laura Elston, a journalist with the Press Association – were released from bail shortly after they were arrested last year and told no further action would be taken.

    In total there have been 48 arrests in relation to the press – 22 under Operation Weeting, 23 under Operation Elveden, the investigation into alleged illegal payments to police and other public officials, and three under Operation Tuleta, which is looking at allegations of computer hacking."
