Dead children ID use by undercover police kept from families

Undercover police officers assumed the identities of 42 dead children, but their families will not be told which IDs were used, a report has confirmed.

The Metropolitan Police has apologised for the "shock and offence" caused by the practice.

Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said: "It's clearly caused some concern for the families."
