LONDON (AP) — Britain's police watchdog says it has received allegations of potential wrongdoing against four former senior officers in the London force.

The officers include police chief Paul Stephenson, who resigned Sunday, and the top anti-terrorist officer John Yates, who stepped down Monday.

It said there are also claims against two unnamed former senior officers about their roles in the phone hacking investigation.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission said it was looking into the claims.
