LONDON - One of London's most senior police officers and its top counter-terrorism officer resigned on Monday over his role in the News Corp phone hacking probe, a day after his boss said he was quitting over the ongoing scandal.

The resignation was announced in a Metropolitan Police statement.

Assistant Commissioner John Yates decided in 2009 not to re-open investigations into alleged phone hacking by journalists at the now defunct News of the World newspaper, saying there was no reason to do so.

However, a new probe launched in January this year found police had 11,000 pages of evidence which had not been thoroughly examined by detectives.
