Mets Assistant Commissioner Yates quits
July 18th 2011
Monday, July 18, 2011 7:32:13 AM by Cardhu John Yates, the under-fire assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police tendered his resignation on Monday afternoon amid reports he was about to be suspended pending ongoing investigations into the phone-hacking investigation.
The move follows the resignation of his boss Sir Paul Stephenson, who quit as Met commissioner on Sunday evening. MPs said they were seeking to ask Mr Yates further questions on the relationship between police and News International.
Boris Johnson, mayor of London, later held a press conference at which he said “both decisions [to resign] were regrettable but in both cases, the right choice has been made.” He went on: “John yates has done a remarkable job leading the fight against terror...millions and millions of londonders are safer due to the actions of John Yates and his team, and that team will now be led by assistant commissioner Cressida Dick.”
