A woman who had a baby with a man whom she later discovered was an undercover police officer is to be paid £425,000 in compensation.
Bob Lambert was working as part of the covert Special Demonstration Squad which infiltrated environmental and animal rights groups when he met the woman in 1984.
The woman, known only as Jacqui, started a relationship with Mr Lambert, who was using the alias Bob Robinson, and became pregnant with his child.
Having previously claimed that she felt like she had been ‘raped by the state’, the woman told the Guardian that the hefty sum would not bring her closure as the police have not admitted fault.
‘I don’t know if he was paid overtime to be with me during the 14 hours of labour I went through giving birth to our son. I feel violated,’ she added.
The court heard how she also required psychiatric treatment and even considered suicide after discovering the true identity of Mr Lambert.
