Undercover policing: MPs demand reforms

Abuses connected with undercover police activities show that an urgent review is needed of laws covering such work in England and Wales, MPs have said.

The Commons Home Affairs Committee said the law failed to protect the rights of those affected, including those in relationships with undercover officers.

It also said forces whose officers used dead children's identities must apologise.
