"Jersey State Media In Another Spin!!!"

Haut de la Garenne reporter arrested in UK police bribery investigation

 Whats not true on this list?

Former Deputy Police Chief Lenny Harper speaking to the media

THE former News of the World crime editor who wrote some of the most lurid stories during the Haut de la Garenne child abuse inquiry has been arrested by anti-corruption police.

Several national newspapers have reported that Lucy Panton was taken in for questioning on suspicion of paying officers for stories.

The 37-year-old was detained during a dawn raid on her Surrey home at 6.15 am on Thursday.
She is the seventh person to have been arrested since the launch of Operation Elveden, a probe into allegations of bungs being given to police officers by journalists.

The investigation is running parallel to the police inquiry into phone hacking.

In February 2008, it was one of Mrs Panton’s photographers who was found hiding in bushes at Haut de la Garenne in the days before former deputy police chief Lenny Harper went public about excavations at the former children’s home in St Martin.
