Rupert Murdoch tackles Sun crisis - live

• The Gardian News Blog

However, some are asking questions about the Sun's former head of features Matt Nixson, who was sacked last summer over an alleged illicit payment to a prison guard and who friends now refer to as "The Wapping One".

It is known that Nixson feels "unfairly treated" by his former employer and forgotten about as they prepare to welcome back the 10 who have been arrested – though he is understood to be happy for his former colleagues who are able to return to work.

Nixson, who has never been arrested by police, is also understood to be asking the NUJ to approach News International on his behalf.
