Son who grew up not knowing his father was an undercover police officer receives compensation

A man who grew up not knowing that his father was actually an undercover policeman, spying on his mother, has received substantial damages for the emotional trauma it’s caused.

Bob Lambert fathered the child during a relationship with an animal rights activist.

But Mr Lambert wasn’t an activist as he claimed, he was a Metropolitan Police Officer on a covert operation.

The Met Police have apologised unreservedly.
