A man believed to be a MI6 employee has been found murdered in a flat in Pimlico
The man's body was found in a sports bag in the bathtub of the flat; it's believed that he had been stabbed, and may have been murdered up to a fortnight ago. He is said to have worked for GCHQ
(the signals-intelligence arm of the British state), on secondment to MI6, though his exact job title is unknown. The flat is in Pimlico, not far from the MI6 headquarters at Vauxhall Cross, in a street where bankers and politicians live.
Assuming that reports of the man being a MI6 agent are true (and the government, understandably, is not forthcoming on the matter), this is the highest-profile murder of an intelligence agent in London since the polonium poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko in 2006.
