The Sun editor Dominic Mohan has spoken out today after the arrests of 5 current employees over allegations of inappropriate payments to police and public officials.

The editor who gave evidence at the Leveson Inquiry last week today said he was “shocked” at the arrests which took place early this morning. “I’m as shocked as anyone by today’s arrests but am determined to lead the Sun through these difficult times.”

A total of 8 people were arrested this morning by officers from Operation Elveden. They are investigating allegations of inappropriate payments to police and public officials. A Ministry of Defence employee and a serving Surrey police officer was among those taken in for questioning today.

Mohan added that his focus was putting together Monday’s edition of the paper. He has been the editor since 2009, when he replaced Rebekah Brooks.
