LONDON (AP) - An independent police oversight body will supervise the investigation of whether tabloid reporters paid police officers for information.

Deborah Glass, deputy commissioner of the Independent Police Complaints Commission, said Thursday that she will personally supervise the investigation into whether a number of officers received payments from the News of the World, the Sunday tabloid.

Glass says she hopes to assure the public that London’s Metropolitan Police have done everything possible to identify offenders.
