Two police officers, a soldier and a journalist have been arrested as part of an investigation into the leaking of sensitive information to the media.

In a joint operation Thames Valley Police (TVP) and the Hertfordshire Constabulary arrested the four along with a man from Hertfordshire.

Four people were later released, two on police bail and two pending further inquiries, police said.

A TVP spokesman said: "The investigation relates to the leaking of sensitive police information and does not involve information relating to the Army or any military operations."

A number of premises in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire have been searched.
