LONDON, July 17 (Reuters) - Rupert Murdoch's British newspaper business, mired in a widening scandal stemming from phone hacking, pledged on Sunday to fully cooperate with inquiries by police, who themselves are under mounting pressure for being too close to his media empire.

Britain's senior police chief Paul Stephenson came under renewed pressure late on Saturday after it emerged he had stayed at a luxury spa at which Neil Wallis, a former News of the World deputy editor, was a public relations adviser.

Stephenson already had come under fire after his force said Wallis, who has been arrested over the phone-hacking scandal and is free on bail, had been hired as a consultant by the police.
