Top intelligence official falls into coma
The top spy in the UK, Alex Allan, mysteriously fell into a coma earlier this week and is still at hospital. So far, there is no evidence of foul play.
Britain's top intelligence official is in a coma in a London hospital after collapsing at home, police and his office said on Friday.
Alex Allan, 56, chairman of the government's Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC), the body which oversees the work of the security services at home and abroad, fell ill on Monday.
Media reports said he had undergone toxicology tests to check whether he was deliberately poisoned, although police said there was no suspicion of foul play.
