The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has apologised to one family for using the name of a dead child for an undercover officer.
I know people have been shocked, upset and even angered by what they've read and heard, and as Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, I have a duty to account for what our predecessors have done when faced with serious challenges.
I absolutely agree with Chief Constable Creedon that the Metropolitan Police should apologise for the shock and offence the use of this tactic has caused. My officers have this morning passed on that apology directly to one family, which has been told its child's identity may have been used, and fourteen families who have contacted us to ask whether this may have happened.
