CNN host Piers Morgan has been interviewed by British police investigating suspected conspiracy to intercept telephone voicemails.

Morgan confirmed Friday through his spokesperson that he was interviewed on Dec. 6.

The Metropolitan Police said that a 48-year-old journalist was "interviewed under caution" on that date by officers investigating phone hacking. No arrest was made.

UK police do not generally release names of people questioned but will sometimes answer requests about specific people in this manner.

It is linking the questioning to a specific inquiry into phone hacking at Mirror Group Newspapers. Morgan edited The Daily Mirror newspaper, one of the UK's top tabloids, between 1995 and 2004. He has told a British inquiry he was not aware of any phone hacking during his tenure.
