London's Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner John Yates during a press conference, in London, announcing his resignation, Monday, July 18, 2011. Former London police deputy John Yates says he acted with complete integrity in Britain's phone hacking crisis. Yates was the second high-profile casualty from the Metropolitan Police to resign in the past 24 hours. His resignation earlier Monday followed the decision of his boss, Paul Stephenson, to leave his post Sunday night. Yates was the official who decided two years ago not to reopen police inquiries into phone hacking, saying he did not believe there was any new evidence. (AP Photo /Steve Parsons, Pool)
