MI5 spy sues bosses for blowing cover with Real IRA

A security agent is suing the British government for more than €750,000 after he was forced to give evidence at a Real IRA arms plot trial.

The spy, code-named 'Amir', is claiming that the security service committed a breach of trust and failed in its duty of care after he was summoned to give evidence at a trial in Northern Ireland earlier this year.
