Councillor: Fake David Haye tried to 'catfish' me

Boxer David Haye says an online imposter is pretending to be him or a member of his management on social media, inviting women to events and sending explicit images.

One of the would-be victims of the scam got in touch with BBC Radio 5 live after receiving an online message claiming to be from Haye's representatives.

Councillor Louise Dickens told 5 live Daily's Peter Allen why she knew it wasn't the real former WBA heavyweight champion contacting her but chose to play along and to see what the imposter - or "catfish" - wanted.
