Two of Britain’s most senior police officers pocketed substantial pay-offs after resigning over the phone-hacking scandal, the Daily Mail can reveal.

Former Scotland Yard Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson and his colleague John Yates are thought to have received up to £500,000 between them.

The cash was handed out after the pair signed gagging orders which bar them from suing the Metropolitan Police or speaking about their treatment.
