British police have made their 17th arrest in the investigation of phone hacking by journalists at the defunct News of the World tabloid.
London's Metropolitan Police said a 31-year-old woman was arrested in northern England on Wednesday. Her name was not disclosed.
The growing phone hacking scandal has rocked Britain for months now.
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch shut down the tabloid in July after evidence emerged that it had accessed the mobile phone voice mails of celebrities, politicians and even crime victims in its search for exclusives.
The London force says 120 officers and staff are now working on the investigation.
