A woman who was in a relationship and had a child with man she believed was a political campaigner, but later discovered he was an undercover police officer has won over £400,000 in compensation, reports the Guardian.
In 2012, a woman named only as "Jacqui" discovered a partner she was seeing 24 years ago was an undercover police officer after reading a newspaper. The relationship also produced a child.
The officer in question is a named Bob Lambert and had told Jacqui he was a leftwing radical called Bob Robinson in 1984. Jacqui became enamoured of Mr Lambert and they had a son together a year after meeting. However, at the time Mr Lambert already had a wife and children living in another part of the country.
