“A 21-year-old man from St Neots has been arrested after the main switchboard at Cambridgeshire police HQ was jammed by thousands of calls on Friday.

Concerned callers rang the Huntingdon-based HQ after receiving an email informing them that 399.99 would be taken out of their account to pay for an iPod music player they’d supposedly ordered.”
