A former undercover police officer in the UK has spoken of his "great concern" about the harm children may suffer as a result of being used as spies in investigations.

Neil Woods, an officer with Derbyshire Police for 23 years, said being a covert human intelligence source (CHIS) is "dangerous" and organised crime gangs often subject informants to "the most extreme violence".
