A second man has been arrested in connection with the Andrew Mitchell “plebgate” affair, police said today.

The 23-year-old, who is not a police officer or a member of police staff, was arrested last night on suspicion of intentionally encouraging or assisting the commission of an indictable offence on or around December 14, Scotland Yard said.

He was questioned at a London police station and released on bail this morning to return in January, a spokesman said.
