    Detectives from the Metropolitan police's cybercrime unit executed an address warrant at an address in Feltham on Thursday.

    The teenager was arrested on suspicion of Computer Misuse Act offences during the search.

    He was later bailed.

    The boy is the second teenager to be arrested after TalkTalk was hit by a cyberattack last week.

    On Monday, a 15-year-old boy from County Antrim in Northern Ireland was arrested on suspicion of Computer Misuse Act offences.

    He has been bailed to a date in November.
