Professor Christopher Andrew will share some secrets of the security services in the Mile End Group Lecture at the university on Tuesday November 3.

Dr Jon Davis who is the director of the university's Mile End Group of historical researchers said: "Professor Andrew is Britain's leading intelligence historian and we are incredibly pleased to welcome him to Queen Mary.
