The family of MI6 spy Gareth Williams have hit out at the failures of MI6 to raise the alarm after the spy went missing, saying their "grief is exacerbated" by it.
In a statement read out by their solicitor after the inquest into his death concluded, they said they were "extremely disappointed" at the secret services' "reluctance and failure" to make relevant information available to the death inquiry.
They also attacked the "total inadequacies" of the inquiry by Metropolitan Police counter-terror branch SO15 into MI6 and called on Scotland Yard's chief to look into how the investigation would proceed in light of this.
Whatever the coroner's verdict today at the inquest into the death of MI6 spy Gareth Williams, many questions will remain unanswered.

Experts can't rule out the possibility that the MI6 spy found dead in a bag, locked himself in unaided, before dying.
