STORY: "Lawyer alleges M16 involvement in spy death," by reporter Mark Stone, published by Sky News on May 01, 2012,

GIST: "Anthony O'Toole, the Williams' family lawyer, made the accusation in open court during the 31-year-old GCHQ code breaker's inquest at Westminster Coroner's Court. The allegation came after it emerged MI6 failed to hand over nine computer memory sticks to Scotland Yard.........Members of Mr Williams' family shook their heads as DC Hall revealed his search of Mr Williams' office was called off shortly after the spy was found dead. Mr Hall said "there was stuff in there of a sensitive nature" in the bag but, when asked what, he said he could not remember. Mr O'Toole added: "That's about as helpful as a London pea souper." Earlier, Detective Chief Inspector Jackie Sebire, the police officer in charge of the investigation, returned to give evidence to the inquest and told the coroner she had no knowledge of the memory sticks, or the bag, until this morning. "Had I known about their existence, I would have expected them to be disclosed and any relevant information to be sent to my team," she said. It is not clear what relevance if any the sticks and the bag have to the investigation into Mr Williams' death, but DCI Sebire said that MI6 should have told her about their existence. It was also disclosed that MI6 searched some of Mr Williams' "electronic media" without telling the police."
