Piers Morgan quizzed over phone hacking at Daily Mirror

Former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan has been questioned by Scotland Yard detectives in connection with claims of phone hacking.

The journalist was previously interviewed under caution at the end of 2013 by officers investigating claims of illegal interception of voicemails by Mirror Group journalists.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said a 50-year-old man was interviewed under caution in connection with suspected conspiracy to intercept telephone voicemails.

"He was interviewed by appointment. He was not arrested," he added.

Mr Morgan, who was editor of the Daily Mirror from 1995 until 2004, has always denied any involvement in phone hacking.
