Met pays £425,000 to mother of undercover policeman's child

The Metropolitan Police is to pay more than £400,000 to a woman whose child was fathered by a man who she did not know was an undercover police officer.

The unprecedented payment comes after a legal battle with women who say they were duped into relationships with officers who were spying on them.

Scotland Yard says it "unreservedly apologises for any pain and suffering".

June Kelly reports.
