Prince William's friend from Eton school has been arrested by the Cyber Police after a tiny computer error led them to his door.
Jeremy Carlton-Smythe, who is the son of a prominent London Banker, is believed to have provided the Lulz Sec Computer Hacking team with security access codes for the cyber attack on the International Monetary Fund.
Lulz Sec, whose motto is "Laughing at your security since 2011" have said that they know nothing about Carlton-Smythe but, even if they did, they weren't going to admit to it.
Carlton-Smythe is, however, known to the London Police. After leaving school he joined a revolutionary art group and set up a squat in a £3.5m house in Mayfair. From this house he is believed to have helped Julian Assange spy on dodgy bankers who lived in the house next door.
Two years after he moved to the squat, he was evicted by the London Council, and he was offered shelter by Prince William who let him live in his garden shed rent free. Prince William also let Carlton-Smythe use his Wi-fi connection, and it was this Wi-Fi connection that led to his downfall.
During routine bugging of the Royal Family's computer system, the Government intercepted strangely encrypted messages from a Twitter account user calling himself "The Ha Ha Hacker"
At first they thought the Hacker was Prince William himself but after they tracked The Ha Ha Hacker's laptop for a while they realised it was being carried around by someone else.
They immediately swooped in on Carlton Smythe's shed and took him in for questioning. Eye witnesses said it all looked very jolly. The Ha Ha Hacker laughed all the way to Prison.
Upon being asked what he was laughing at, the Hacker replied. "Its a joke about quantum physics I was told last Tuesday by Professor Stephen Hawking. You wouldn't get it, so I'm not going to explain it to you."
The police think they might need to call Professor Stephen Hawking because they believe this joke may be the key to saving the world.
Professor Stephen Hawking refused to comment when we phoned him up two minutes ago. He thought the whole situation was very funny and he laughed at being reminded of the joke. Apparently quantum physics is hilarious.
