Phone-hacking suspects freed

Six suspects arrested over allegations of cover-ups in the phone-hacking inquiry -- understood to include Rebekah Brooks and her racehorse trainer husband -- have been released on bail, Scotland Yard said.

The News International former chief executive and Charlie Brooks -- a friend of the Prime Minister since school -- were held yesterday on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

Mark Hanna, News International's head of security, was also confirmed by the company as one of the six people arrested in raids in Oxfordshire, London, Hampshire and Hertfordshire.

All six suspects were later bailed to dates next month.
