Rebekah Brooks, former chief executive of News Corp's British newspaper arm News International, was released on bail early on Monday after being questioned over the phone-hacking scandal, the Metropolitan police said in a statement.

"At approximately midnight, the woman was bailed to return to a London police station on a date in late October," the police said in the statement.

British police earlier had arrested the 43-year-old Brooks as part of an investigation into allegations of illegal voicemail interception and police bribery.

Brooks, who has denied knowing about the alleged hacking cases, resigned over the allegations at News International's News of the World tabloid, the paper she edited at the time some of the worst offences were alleged to have happened.
