The men of Scotland Yard are a handsome bunch, and women are known to fall for a uniform now and then.
But what if the officer is undercover,
and no uniform is involved?
That’s the subject of a newly filed lawsuit in the UK.
Eight different women, all animal rights activists, fell for undercover police officers who infiltrated their extremists groups.
In each instance the spies encouraged amorous behavior to the point of sexual relationships, often lasting for years.
One extreme case involved undercover Metropolitan Police officer Bob Lambert, pictured below.
Bob pretended to be an activist for five years, fathering a child with his subject and then leaving her when his covert assignment drew to a close.
Now the women are suing for the “enormous emotional trauma” after realizing their lovers were deployed undercover policemen, simply doing their job each day.
