Russian security officials have accused a British diplomat based in Moscow of spying, Russian news agencies report.
They said the official, named as Christopher Bower, was a senior British intelligence officer.
The British embassy in Moscow has so far refused to make any comments on the Russian reports.
The allegation follows a recent BBC report that the Russian state had been involved in the murder of its former agent Alexander Litvinenko in 2006.
Mr Bower worked as a reporter for the BBC before joining the UK Foreign Office in the 1990s.
