Former Rolls-Royce engineer 'arrested under Official Secrets Act' amid fears China tried to obtain F-35 fighter jet detailsA man in his 70s has been arrested as part of a probe under the Official Secrets Act, police said on Thursday, amid reports he was a former Rolls-Royce engineer suspected of divulging secrets about Britain's new stealth fighter to China.

A search at an address in Derbyshire was ongoing while a search warrant was also executed at an office address in the West Midlands. The man was named by the Sun as  Bryn Jones, a former chief combustion technologist, who it said had been detained in connection with efforts by China to obtain classified information about Britain's new £100million RAF stealth fighter jet. The 73-year-old former Rolls-Royce employee was reportedly held after MI5 received information that classified details were passed to Beijing.

UK industry provides 15 per cent of each of the 3,000 aircraft currently on the order books and at peak production 25,000 British jobs will be supported throughout the supply chain.
