Energy giant BP, increasingly exposed in some of its exploration and extraction facilities to potentially fatal risks has added a heavyweight security expert to its board. In fact they do not come much heavier than Sir John Sawers, who retired as head of MI6 in November.

He has been offered a position as non-executive director. He is currently chairman and partner at Macro Advisory Partners.

Sawers was previously Britain’s Ambassador at the UN, and served in the Middle East in a number of senior government roles especially in Egypt and Iraq. He ran MI6 for five years.
