LONDON — Prime Minister David Cameron’s office has welcomed the news that Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. media empire has dropped its bid to takeover lucrative British Sky Broadcasting.

His office says in a statement that Murdoch’s company should focus on “clearing up the mess and getting its own house in order.”

Cameron has acknowledged that “a firestorm” was engulfing Britain’s press, police and government over allegations of phone hacking and alleged police bribery by Murdoch’s U.K. papers, and named a judge to lead an investigation into the practices.
