Discussion: Hollywood Reporter, @fieldproducer, @skymarkwhite, @skymarkwhite, @skynewsbiz, @skynewspr, @paidcontent, @fleetstreetfox, @antderosa and @tcarmody
Neal Mann / @fieldproducer: Sky News has no information to suggest that James Murdoch has been arrested and believe the @SkyNewsBiz account has been hacked.
Mark White / @skymarkwhite: Just spoken to Met Police. They are not aware of any #phonehacking related arrest. Sky Newsdesk checking where tweet originated from
Mark White / @skymarkwhite: Don't get too excited over James Murdoch arrest tweet. Don't think it's true. Trying to get to the bottom of it
Sky / @skynewsbiz: BREAKING: James Murdoch arrested over phone-hacking claims. Questioned at Paddington Green police station at 10pm.
@skynewspr: Every indication is that @SkyNewsBiz account was hacked, we are investigating if and how this could have happened.
@paidcontent: Sky News quickly deleted tweet that its own chairman was arrested; nothing running on TV channel
@fleetstreetfox: Talk of James Murdoch being arrested, seems untrue. No hacking cops would give themselves hours of work on a Saturday night, anyway.
