LONDON - The outgoing head of London's police said on Tuesday that his resignation statement was not an attack on the way UK Prime Minister David Cameron had handled a phone hacking crisis.

"I was taking no such swipe at the prime minister," Paul Stephenson told a parliamentary committee investigating the crisis engulfing Rupert Murdoch's News Corp media empire and the police.

Stephenson announced his resignation on Sunday after it emerged that the force had hired Neil Wallis, a former deputy newspaper editor now implicated in the scandal, as a media adviser.
