Scotland Yard, still reeling from the alleged police role in Britain's phone hacking scandal, was asked Thursday to investigate another explosive claim: that journalists bribed officers to locate people by tracking their cell phone signals.
James Murdoch's former legal adviser and a former editor contested the testimony he gave to British lawmakers, saying Thursday he was told years ago about an email that suggested the rot at his Sunday tabloid was far more widespread than previously claimed.
Rupert Murdoch's car was mobbed by photographers Tuesday as he arrived for a grilling from U.K. lawmakers about the phone-hacking scandal that has swept from his media empire through the London police and even to the prime minister's office.
Sean Hoare was the kind of reporter who could knock back several whiskeys and a few lines of cocaine before filing salacious stories of celebrity misbehavior.
Britain's tabloid phone-hacking scandal enveloped the London police force Monday with the rapid-fire resignations of two top officers and claims of possible illegal eavesdropping, bribery and collusion. U.K. officials immediately vowed to investigate.
A key aide to Prime Minister David Cameron will be questioned by police over allegations a major British tabloid illegally eavesdropped on politicians and celebrities, including the British princes, a senior Scotland Yard officer said Tuesday.
Hoare _ who was fired in 2005 _ said officers were paid nearly $500 (300 pounds) per trace.
