Met Boss Faces Questions Over Wallis Links

The Metropolitan Police commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson is facing more questions over his links with former News Of The World executive Neil Wallis, Sky sources say.

It emerged earlier this week that Mr Wallis, who was arrested by police investigating phone hacking allegations, had worked for the Met as a media consultant.

Sky has now learnt that Sir Paul spent time at a health farm where Mr Wallis was a consultant.

Sir Paul had an operation on his leg before Christmas to remove a pre-cancerous tumour.

And he needed a second procedure just after Christmas to repair a fracture to a bone in that leg.

He then spent some time recuperating at a Champneys health resort.

The operation was funded by the Met's healthcare scheme but the accommodation was free as it was paid for by an acquaintance of Sir Paul's, the managing director at the farm, Sky sources say.

And it has now emerged that Mr Wallis was working as a consultant for the resort.

It is not known if he and Sir Paul had any dealings at all at the farm.

Sky's Tom Parmenter said: "There is no suggestion at this stage that there is any overt wrongdoing between Sir Paul Stephenson staying at this health farm and their PR person being Neil Wallis.

"But nevertheless, it is about public perception and the questions that will inevitably follow."

Glenn Mulcaire was jailed in 2007 over phone hacking

Meanwhile, police have told two senior Mail On Sunday journalists their phones may have been hacked by private investigator Glenn Mulcaire.

Their names have been found in notebooks belonging to Mulcaire, who was hired by the News Of The World (NOTW) and jailed in 2007 for phone hacking.

One of the journalists is former news editor Sebastian Hamilton while the other is ex-investigations editor Dennis Rice, the Mail On Sunday confirmed.

Four years ago, Mulcaire was sentenced to six months in prison for plotting to hack into the telephone messages of Royal aides.

Police have said around 4,000 people could have had their phones targeted as officers continue their investigation, named Operation Weeting, into the phone-hacking scandal.
