Mayor Takes Stephenson Resignation With ‘Reluctance,’ Sky Says

July 17 (Bloomberg) -- Mayor of London Boris Johnson accepted Metropolitan Police Commissioner Paul Stephenson’s resignation “with great sadness” and “reluctance,” he told Sky News in an interview.

Stephenson resigned so as not to be a “distraction” in the run-up to the Olympic Games and there’s “no question” about Stephenson’s own “integrity,” Johnson said in the interview.
