Rebekah Brooks did not know she was going to become the 10th person arrested in the phone-hacking investigation when her resignation as News International’s chief executive was announced on Friday.
It is understood that the appointment to be interviewed by police was not in her diary until Friday evening, hours after she left the company after 22 years.
It was not until she met officers at a London police station that she learned she was being arrested on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications and on suspicion of corruption.
“It was quite a surprise,” her spokesman said.
