A spy has been exposed by his wife over a gay sex scandal, The Telegraph can disclose.
The case was raised in a military divorce heard in court recently, involving an intelligence officer in an Army unit that targets al-Qaeda and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).
The scandal emerged after the officer’s wife discovered he was having one-off sexual liaisons with men he met near his Army base and close to the headquarters of MI6 in south London.
The woman is divorcing him but reported his activities to military commanders.

This newspaper has seen military correspondence in which the woman raises concerns about Developed Vetting (DV), a security procedure designed to alert intelligence agencies to issues with the private lives of their staff which could make them vulnerable to blackmail.
The wife said: “DV is not fit for purpose any more. It’s an honesty box system that doesn’t work. I found out what my husband was doing very easily. Imagine what trained people could do with this information.”
A couple of years into their marriage, her suspicions were aroused when she discovered pornography on her husband’s mobile phone and evidence that he had been using gay dating websites.When she challenged him during a phone call while he was stationed abroad, he admitted that he had engaged in casual sex with men he had met near where he was working.
She said she was concerned that no one from the Armed Forces had asked her to provide the details: “I find it very odd that they haven’t asked me for any information.” The woman feels she has been treated unfairly.
