Undercover police 'were expected to use sex'

A former undercover police officer has told the Today programme he and his colleagues were expected to have sexual relationships with the activists they were spying on.

Peter Francis worked in the now disbanded, Special Demonstration Squad with Bob Lambert, who had a child with a woman he was secretly monitoring in the 1980s.

She is to get more than £400,000 compensation from the Metropolitan Police.
