It has been reported that the intelligence services are investigating possible foreign involvement in the death of spy Gareth Williams.

The 31-year-old worked for the intelligence services at GCHQ and was on secondment to MI6 when he was found dead.

Police found his decomposing body zipped up in a sports bag.

Now concern is said to be growing within the intelligence community that he may have been the victim of a professional hit by a foreign power.

MI6, MI5 and GCHQ - are reported to be working closely to try and establish whether or not Williams was targeted.
