News Summary: Top UK police officers investigated
A PROBE: Britain's police watchdog is investigating two senior police officers whose force failed to act on information that could have blown open the phone-hacking scandal well before it erupted last year.
DETAILS: The Independent Police Complaints Commission says it's reviewing the conduct of Surrey Police's deputy chief constable, Craig Denholm, and the force's temporary detective superintendent, Maria Woodall.
ABOUT THE SCANDAL: The scandal forced the closure of the News of the World, cost proprietor Rupert Murdoch his bid for full control of satellite broadcaster BSkyB, and led to a series of overlapping police, parliamentary and regulatory inquiries.
