Max Hill KC is stepping down as head of the Crown Prosecution Service

Max Hill KC will step down as Director of Public Prosecutions later this year.

The senior barrister, who took over at the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in November 2018, confirmed his decision on Twitter.

He has posted a link to an article by legal commentator Joshua Rosenberg saying he will step down at the end of October when his five-year appointment as head of the Public Prosecution Service expires.

The article says Mr. Hill could have asked for another term, but on Monday told CPS staff he wouldn’t.

Mr Hill was called to the Bar in 1987 and appointed Queen’s Counsel in 2008.

Throughout his career, he has led some of the most important and high-profile murder trials, including working on one of the Damlola Taylor murder trials and the 2005 London bombings.
