Ex-Met Police spy Bob Lambert 'should be sacked' as lecturer

In 2014, the Metropolitan Police paid £425,000 to a woman whose child was fathered by a man she did not know was an undercover police officer.

Former Special Branch detective Bob Lambert has apologised for his actions but his critics are campaigning for him to be sacked from his job at London Metropolitan University.

BBC London reporter Alex Bushill spoke to deputy chairwoman of the London Assembly's policing and crime committee Jenny Jones, London Metropolitan University senior criminology lecturer Tim Parsons and Alex Hudson from the campaign group Islington Against Spies.
