LONDON (AP) — Police say they are searching the newsroom of a second British tabloid as part of a widening investigation into a tabloid phone hacking scandal.

Scotland Yard said Friday that a business in central London was being searched. They did not name the premise, but offered the information when asked about the Daily Star Sunday.

The search is believed to be connected to the arrest of Clive Goodman, the former News of the World royal editor who served a jail term in 2007 for hacking into the phones of royal aides.

Goodman was re-arrested Friday on suspicion of making illegal payoffs to police for information.
