News International confirmed that one of the individuals arrested on Thursday was a Sun journalist. They are the 13th current and former journalist from the paper to be arrested under Operation Elveden. http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2012/ju ... e-arrested
Where do the Plod get these ridiculous Operation names from? Elveden sounds like a place on Middle Earth.
It actually was supposed to be Operation Eleven, but the standard of literacy in the Force is not what it was.
Google also tells me it's a place in Suffolk....
The name Elveden seems to come from Old English *ælfa-dene 'elves' valley': the name appears, translated into Latin, as vallis nympharum 'valley of nymphs' in the mid-twelfth-century Miracula sancte Wihtburge. During the 17th and 18th Centuries, the village was often referred to as Elden and the village name is often incorrectly spelt today as 'Elvedon'.
Elveden and the nearby village of Weeting were used as the code-names for investigations into the News Of The World phone hacking allegations during July 2011
