Undercover policeman 'was paid to love me'

The Metropolitan Police is to pay £425,000 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.

The woman told BBC News that, "there is no admission by the police that what they did was wrong, there is no meaningful apology and most importantly there are no answers."

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

June Kelly reports.
