A man who was arrested by detectives investigating the hacking of a personal iCloud account has been released without charge.

On 24 September 2016, detectives arrested a 35-year-old man at an address in Northamptonshire on suspicion of unauthorised access with intent to commit or facilitate commission of further offences, contrary to the Computer Misuse Act.

A case file was subsequently submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service, but following CPS advice, the man was released with no further action on 8 September.
