The hacking and police bribery scandal cut closer than ever to London's police force with the resignation of London's police commissioner.

The head of the Metropolitan force, Paul Stephenson, and former newspaper executive, Rebekah Brooks, who resigned on Sunday, have denied wrongdoing. Hours after Brook's arrest, Stephenson resigned as commissioner of London's force.

He quit in the face of allegations that police officers had accepted money from Rupert Murdoch's News of the World paper and not done enough to investigate phone-hacking charges. Stephenson said he did not want criticism of his conduct to detract from ensuring security at the Olympic Games.
