DescriptionWilliam Hague's special adviser has resigned over "untrue and malicious" allegations made against him, the Foreign Secretary has said.

Mr Hague said suggestions Christopher Myers' appointment was due to an improper relationship between them were "utterly false".

In a statement, he also denied his marriage to wife Ffion was in trouble.

He revealed they have suffered multiple miscarriages and are still grieving the loss of a pregnancy this summer.

Mr Myers, 25, was employed by Mr Hague during the election campaign as a constituency aide and after the election worked for the foreign secretary as a policy adviser.

Mr Hague admitted to "occasionally" sharing hotel rooms with Mr Myers during the election.
