FILE - This Thursday Aug. 10, 2006 photo from files shows Sir Paul Stephenson, the Deputy Commissioner of London's Metropolitan Police Service, as he reads out a statement outside New Scotland Yard in London. London's police chief announced he had quit Sunday, July 17, 2011, over his links to a former News of the World editor caught up in the phone hacking scandal. Metropolitan Police commissioner Paul Stephenson denies wrongdoing. But he has been criticized for hiring Neil Wallis, a former News of the World executive editor arrested last week in the scandal, as a part-time PR consultant for a year until September 2010.
