Major (Ret.) Chris Hunter, was one of the most experienced bomb-disabling operators in the British armed forces. During his 17 years in the military he served in a variety of operational counter-IED appointments and saw active service in a number of high threat theatres including Iraq, Afghanistan, Colombia and Northern Ireland.

Chris rounded off his military career as a senior intelligence analyst at the Ministry of Defence. At the time of the London suicide bombings, he was seconded to COBRA, the Cabinet Office's emergency response committee.

Since retiring from the army, Chris has worked as a counter-terrorism consultant, writer and broadcaster. His memoir Eight Lives Down tells the harrowing story of his experiences in Iraq. He is a regular contributor to television and radio news and current affairs programmes.
