London - British police on Sunday arrested Rebekah Brooks, the former head of media mogul Rupert Murdoch's British newspaper wing, over the phone hacking scandal, British media reported.

Scotland Yard said in a statement that a 43-year-old woman had been arrested over allegations of phone hacking and corruption. They would not confirm it was Brooks, 43, and there was no immediate comment from News International.

Sky News, which is part of Murdoch's British media empire, and the BBC both reported it was Brooks, who resigned as head of News International on Friday.

The woman was arrested by appointment at a police station in London and is currently in custody, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement, without identifying her.

"She was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications... and on suspicion of corruption allegations," the statement said.

Those arrested so far over the scandal include Prime Minister David Cameron's former communciations chief and one-time News of the World editor Andy Coulson.
