THE next Governor of Gibraltar has been named as Lieutenant General Sir James Benjamin Dutton.

He will take over from Vice-Admiral Sir Adrian Johns, who is due to leave at the end of December.

Sir James has enjoyed a varied career, including 37 years service in the Royal Marines, the last ten spent in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“I am delighted and honoured to be going to Gibraltar, especially given its historical connections with the Royal Marines,” said Sir James.” My wife and I are looking forward to meeting the people of Gibraltar.”
