US-UK intelligence-sharing indispensible, says Hague

Britain and the US should have "nothing but pride" in their "indispensable intelligence-sharing relationship", the UK foreign secretary has said.

William Hague, speaking in Los Angeles, acknowledged recent controversy over intelligence gathering by the UK's GCHQ and the US's National Security Agency.

"'Intelligence work takes place within a strong legal framework. We operate under the rule of law and are accountable for it," Mr Hague said in his speech at the Ronald Reagan Library.
