London: The head of Britain`s domestic spy agency, MI5, will step down from his post next month at the end of his contract.

Jonathan Evans has led MI5 as director general since 2007, and Britain`s Home Secretary Theresa May announced to lawmakers today that the spy chief would be "moving on" after 33 years in the security services.
May praised Evans` "invaluable contribution to public safety and national security." She says Evans led the service through "particularly challenging" times such as the aftermath of the 2005 bomb attacks on London`s transport network.
The home secretary also commended Evans for ensuring a "safe and successful" London Olympics last summer.
