Some 27 UK journalists have now been charged with criminal offences as a result of police investigations into phone-hacking and allegedly illegal payments to public officials.
At least 61 UK journalists have been arrested since April 2011 (not including News of the World private investigator Glenn Mulcaire and Rebekah Brooks' PA Cheryl Carter). Other arrested newspaper employees not included in this list include former News of the World lawyer Tom Crone, four News International security staff and a chauffeur.
Together, the three main police operations stemming from the News of the World hacking scandal are said to represent the biggest investigation in UK criminal history.
The table below lists all the confirmed journalist arrests so far and their current status. The police inquiries are: Elveden (payments to public officials), Weeting (voicemail interception), Tuleta (computer hacking) and Rubicon (investigations surrounding the Tommy Sheridan perjury trial).
The vast majority of journalists arrested so far (where their publication is known) are from News UK titles: News of the World (23), The Sun (23) and The Times (2).
Other arrested journalists are from the Sunday People (3) Sunday Mirror (2), Daily Mirror (1), Daily Star Sunday (1) Press Association (1 – now cleared) and one freelance (also cleared).
So far 12 arrested journalists have been cleared and 23 remain on police bail (most of these have been on bail for more than a year). Some 27 journalists have been charged in total but the case against The Sun's Virginia Wheeler was dropped on health grounds*.
Those journalists who have been charged under one inquiry, but also arrested under others, are only listed for the inquiry where they have been charged to avoid the risk of contempt of court.
