I’m Britain’s top female spy

SHE is Britain’s top secret agent, whose job at MI5 is so dangerous that she can’t even tell her close family about the job.

But the woman known as Director K has admitted her children “rumoured” her, using their own espionage skills.

Director K said she has decided to speak out now as Britain faces an unprecedented security threat, which means we must all be involved in stopping hostile forces.

In her first interview, she added that the kids are responsible enough to keep it as their own top secret.

Director K, supervisor Russian, Chinese people and Iranians spy, in her 40s but has given very few details about her private life in wide conversation.

She said she had decided to speak out now as Britain faces an unprecedented security threat, which means we must all be involved in stopping hostile forces.

She describes the threat from Russia – responsible for Novichok poisoned double agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury in 2018 – like a “storm” and says that Russia carries out “lightning attacks” in other countries, and is unpredictable.

In contrast, the global risk posed by an increasingly powerful and aggressive China is similar to climate change – in that it is changing the way the world works, presenting huge opportunities as well as threats to Britain.

Acknowledging that she is genuinely concerned about the risks her children face in the modern world, Director K summarizes the dangers: “Threats of the state, the way the world is changing, aggravated by Covid. How do we do this properly?

“This is not our gift, if it ever was for MI5. It should be a community effort.”

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph at MI5’s Thames House headquarters in London, she added: “It’s really easy to think of this as espionage, historical fiction and film territory, Cold War content, but it really isn’t.

“It impacts every sector of society – possibly every individual in the UK.”

Director K sees her job as addressing every aspect of anti-terrorism external security, including By Vladimir Putin assassins and cyberattacks carried out by countries like North Korea.

And after spending a lot of time researching other countries that don’t have a free press, she notes how important it is for us in this country to protect our safety, saying it’s “real.” deserving of protection”.

It’s really easy to think of these as espionage, historical fiction and film territory, and Cold War content, but it really isn’t.

Director KI

As one of our most senior domestic agents, Director K’s Identity could never be revealed and even the journalist who interviewed her this week was not given her real name.

Only her boss, Ken McCallum, general manager of MI5 – who gave an in-depth interview for The Sun on Thursday – has made his name in the public domain.

Director K was in MI5 for two years and switched roles after two decades with MI6, spending at least some of that time in hostile territory.

She said she understands why people might compare her to the stereotypical female spies in Bond movie.

For example, Rosa Klebb in From Russia With Love will take down enemies with a spike hidden in her shoe.

“The stereotypes can be helpful, because my kids think what I do is really cool,” says director K.
