Football League referee Dean Mohareb is forced to stand down from the Championship match between Peterborough and Barnsley after being arrested on suspicion of computer hacking.

The Championship fixture featuring Barnsley and Peterborough was subject to late change of match official following an arrest into a hacking probe at the Football Association.

Football League referee Dean Mohareb was due to officiate Peterborough's 2-0 win at Oakwell, but stood down after being arrested by Greater Manchester Police on Sunday night.

Mohareb currently holds the senior position of National Referee Development Manager at the Football Association.

A spokesman for the police confirmed the arrest to the BBC in a statement, which read: "On Sunday 30 September police seized a number of electrical items as part of an investigation into computer hacking and the dissemination of private information.

"A 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of unauthorised access to computer material/data, under section 1 of the misuse of computers act 1990. The man has since been bailed until 26 November."

The FA have refused to comment on Mohareb's arrest or his future at this stage.
