MET Police chief Sir Paul Stephenson quit last night over his friendship 
with ex-News of the World deputy editor Neil Wallis.

His resignation came hours after ex-News International chief Rebekah 
Brooks was arrested over allegations of corruption and phone hacking.

Sir Paul, 57, stood down three days after Mr Wallis was arrested over 
Scotland Yard's phone-hacking inquiry.

It then emerged the Met had secretly employed Mr Wallis, 60, as a PR 
consultant after he left the Sunday paper in 2009.
