Man held over Mel C porn mail

Scotland Yard denied Mel C had police protection
A man has been arrested on suspicion of sending sexually explicit mail to Spice Girl Mel C.

The man, who has not been named, is being questioned by Dutch police over offensive material which the star had received.

The singer Melanie Chisholm was reportedly sent a cassette last week with the message: "This is the day we are both going to die."

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Following a joint operation with the Dutch authorities, a man was arrested in Holland on suspicion of sending indecent mail to a woman who lives in the borough of Camden.

"The man remains in police custody in the Netherlands."

Scotland Yard denied reports that the 29-year-old was placed under 24-hour police protection as a result of the threats.
