GCHQ Spy Agency Announces He is Resigning


Robert Hannigan, the head of Britain's intelligence agency GCHQ, said on Monday he was stepping down as head of the eavesdropping service.

Hannigan, GCHQ director since 2014, said he was resigning for personal reasons.

"After a good deal of thought I have decided that this is the right time to move on and to allow someone else to lead GCHQ through its next phase," he wrote in a letter to British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

GCHQ, based in Cheltenham in western England, is one of three British spy agencies alongside MI5 which handles domestic matters and MI6 which deals with foreign affairs.
