Undercover policeman Mark Kennedy 'upset' by accusations of state-sanctioned abuse


Undercover cop Mark Kennedy lived a double life, infiltrating environmental protest groups as 'Mark Stone' and reporting information back to his police handlers.

The married policeman also had a serious relationship with one of the protesters.

In an exclusive in-depth interview, Kennedy told BBC Radio 5 live: "I spent many, many hours with [the protesters] every day."

"I met this person and it happened," Kennedy explained to Victoria Derbyshire. "It's upsetting, yeah."
