Director Robert Hannigan has sent a special birthday card to the Queen on behalf of GCHQ to wish Her Majesty a happy 90th birthday.
The image on the front of the card was specially created by staff as a tribute to the Queen. A photograph of GCHQ’s headquarters, usually known as the 'Doughnut', was altered to turn it into a giant birthday cake to mark the occasion.

Robert Hannigan speaks about the journey GCHQ has made in improving diversity in its workforce and what he sees as some of the challenges for the future. He highlights Alan Turing’s horrific treatment in the 1950s, the sacking of a gay member of staff in the 1960s, and the support a serving transgender member of staff received when she went public about her transition in 2016.
