Rupert Murdoch has said that the Sun on Sunday will be launched ‘very soon’, and that all those who have been suspended can come back to work.

The media mogal, who flew into London yesterday following the arrest of five journalists who were held for questioning by Scotland Yard officers on Saturday before being bailed, made the announcement to staff at Wapping.

He told staff in an email: “We're doing everything we can to assist those who are arrested. All suspensions are hereby lifted until or whether charged and they are welcome to return to work. Everyone is innocent until proven otherwise.

He said: "We will obey the law. Illegal activity simply cannot and will not be tolerated at any of our publications.

"I am staying with you all in London for the next several weeks to give you my unwavering support."
