The Foreign and Commonwealth Office says George Fergusson, 56, is still planning to take up his post in the British overseas territory in May 2012.

He was mugged on Friday while taking a short cut through Margravine Cemetery and Park, in Hammersmith, west London. He managed to walk to a nearby hospital after the attack, in which he lost a small amount of money.

Mr Fergusson previously served as governor of the Pitcairn Islands in his role as high commissioner to New Zealand.
