The coroner at the inquest into the death of a Welsh MI6 spy is expected to record a verdict later today.

Gareth Williams, who was 31 and from Anglesey, was found dead inside a holdall in his London flat in 2010.

Yesterday the inquest heard that the MI6 has been accused of failing to disclose evidence to police during the investigation into the death of the Welsh spy Gareth Williams.

His inquest heard that the secret service held onto nine computer memory sticks and a black bag that were found at their headquarters in London after his death.

The detective leading the investigation has told the hearing that she was only told about them on Monday.

Det Ch Inspector Jackie Sebire, who is leading the investigation, told Westminster Coroner's Court that she "would have expected to have been told" about the belongings in 2010.

"What I knew was that Gareth's email accounts had been checked, but I did not know that other media had been checked," Ms Sebire said.

She added that she was not surprised that Mr Williams had left memory sticks at his office, "given his line of work".
