Sir Angus Stirling, former Director General of the National Trust, was named yesterday as chairman of the trust with responsibility for the historic Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

The decision to hand over the running of the college in south-east London to a trust has caused concern at the nearby National Maritime Museum, which had hoped to play a leading role in opening the Wren-designed 17th century buildings to the public.

However, the University of Greenwich is to move into the site under the trust's administration.
