Soca chairman resigns over undeclared directorship

The chairman of the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) has quit after failing to declare a possible conflict of interest.

Home Secretary Theresa May accepted Sir Ian Andrews's resignation on Thursday.

Sir Ian had failed to declare his directorship in a management consultancy company, Abis Partnership.

The Home Office and Soca have denied that his departure is related to the ongoing controversy over the agency's probe into private investigators.
