The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office is putting one 'desk officer' in charge of Tristan da Cunha, St Helena and Ascension.

Andrew Sigley will be responsible for the FCO's work across all three parts of the Territory. Until now Tristan was dealt with separately from the other two islands, by an officer who also handled Pitcairn. That work will continue, in the hands of a new assistant officer, but Andrew will have formal oversight of the work for Tristan.

Tristan's outgoing desk officer Jonathan Brown will spend several months as acting Administrator on Pitcairn before taking up his next posting.
