Piers Morgan, the former editor of the Daily Mirror, has been questioned under caution for a second time about phone hacking.

Scotland Yard detectives investigating allegations of phone hacking at Mirror Group newspapers questioned the journalist and television host, 50, after he attended an interview by appointment.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed a 50-year-old man had been interviewed under caution on 21 April as part of Operation Golding, the investigation into allegations of phone hacking at Mirror Group.

The former editor - a TV host and editor-at-large of Mail Online in the US - has always denied he was personally involved in hacking.

"Some time ago I was asked to attend an interview with officers from Operation Golding when I was next in the UK," Morgan said in a statement.

"This was further to a previous voluntary interview I provided in December 2013. I attended that interview today. As this is an ongoing investigation, I am unable to comment further until its conclusion."

Morgan, was not arrested as part of the inquiries. He was first questioned by police in December 2013.
