N officers 1
Police officers cited in the Undercover Policing Inquiry (UCPI) are generally designated by a cypher / nominal starting with N or HN followed by a number. The practice of assigning these cyphers was begun in by the Metropolitan Police inquiry Operation Herne which investigated the activities of the Special Demonstration Squad undercovers. It was subsequently adopted by Mark Ellison for his Review and the UCPI, both of which draw heavily on the material assembled by Operation Herne. The practice was also taken up by Operation Elter, investigating the National Public Order Intelligence Unit. The system appears to have changed in 2017, when the 3 August 2017 rulings and direction of the new Inquiry Chair, John Mitting, began using the 'HN' label, though the associated numbers appear to be unchanged.
The N number system appears to be applied across the board for police officers regardless of force, position or involvement with undercover policing. A few have since been identified, but many remain anonymous and as such few details of them are known. Except where profiled elsewhere, this page collates what is known of them and links to relevant documents, including relevant procedural issues within the Undercover Policing Inquiry.
Due to the number of offices and associated details, the list has been split into several pages. This is page 1, covering N officers with cypher number up to 99.

N Officers (1 - 99)
|HN1||Likely to be Matt Rayner (alias)||Minded-To: real name cannot be published.||Deployed against animal rights groups 1992-1997; cover name already in public domain and there 'are allegations about his conduct which require to be publicly ventilated to permit the Inquiry to fulfil its terms of reference. Publication of his real name is not necessary to permit this to be achieved. It would carry significant risks to his physical safety and well-being and the well-being of his family.' This would interfere with Article 8 Right and if the risk did materialise the result would be 'substantial'. Even if the risk didn't materialise, the 'interference would still be significant'. Mitting also said full reasons could not be set out openly and a closed note expanding on them would also be provided.|
|HN2||unknown||Full name and cover name to be published as no application for restriction order made.|| SDS UCO. Application from MPS over restriction on publishing real name only; officer not in position to confirm whether wider restriction is to be sought over the cover name, and open version of material relating to HN2 has yet to be agreed.|
Mentioned in Herne 1 as a former SDS undercover and later a cover officer, now retired:
|N5||John Dines (a.k.a. John Barker)||Confirmed.||SDS UCO|
|HN7||unknown||Subject to final restriction order on real and cover name, made on 4 Sept 2017..|| SDS UCO. Deployed in the late 1980s and early 1990s to three groups. Unconnected with his undercover deployment he sustained a significant head injury while a police officer. This injury and an unrelated condition have caused significant mental and personal problems, subject to a report by Prof. George Fox - who concludes there is a 'significant' ('highly likely to occur') risk of suicide if HN7's real or cover name were published.
A separate ruling without hearing granted HN7 anonymity, based on medical evidence. "[Mitting] has therefore made a final determination based on medical evidence which cannot be properly disputed." Mitting in his ruling on anonymity states the risk to suicide is one he is not prepared to take, and even if that risk were not to materialise, notes "the mental distress which would be occasioned to him would amount to a significant interference in with his right to respect for his private life" under Article 8 human rights and "The need to arrive at that truth in relation to his deployment is unlikely to provide that justification. There is likely to be a good deal of other open evidence of similar and contemporaneous deployments from which conclusions can be drawn". See also Open application for restriction order for HN7.
|N9||unknown||15 Jan 2018, granted further time to provide the Inquiry with information being sought in relation to their restriction order application.||An SDS officer mentioned by N81 in his interview: "N9 later told me that it was quite usual for SDS management to arrange meetings between operatives and outside persons at the management’s homes. This was because such persons would not be able to attend SDS safe houses." (Ellison, p. 232).|
|N10||Bob Lambert||Confirmed.|| SDS UCO & manager. Role in meeting between Richard Walton and N81 discussed in Herne II and the Ellison Review.|
In March 2016 a restriction order application and supporting documents were filed on his behalf seeking some restriction on personal details being released by the Inquiry: Open Application, Personal Statement (open version), Draft Order. In October 2016, Pitchford issued a 'Minded-To' indicating he was willing to grant most of the order sought. Objections were to be received by 3 November 2016, but no final order is readily found on the Inquiry website.
Core participant; represented by Slater & Gordon.
|HN13||unknown||15 Jan 2018: 'Minded-to' grant restriction order over real name; no application in relation to cover name which will be published in due course.|| SDS UCO. Deceased. Infiltrated the Communist Party of England (Marxist-Leninist) from 1974 to 1978. Twice prosecuted for public order offences in his cover name and convicted once. No known allegation of misconduct.
Survived by widow, now in early 70s. She claims her husband was assured of lifelong confidentiality and would not have become an undercover officer otherwise. She wishes that her husband's memory, she and her family should be left in peace, and that a restriction order granted in both real and cover name. Mitting however notes there is a 'sterile corridor' preventing HN13's real name being discovered from his cover name and even if it was breached the risk to the widow etc. is negligible. Thus is no good reason preventing publishing of the cover name which may may permit those he targeted to come forward. As some risk of interference in private life of widow if real name published, that shall be restricted.
|N14||Jim Boyling||Confirmed.|| SDS UCO. In March 2016 a restriction order application and supporting documents were filed on his behalf seeking some restriction on personal details being released by the Inquiry: Open Application, Draft Order. In October 2017, Pitchford issued a 'Minded-To note indicating he would grant the order. Objections were to be received by 3 November 2016, but no final order is readily found on the Inquiry website. Mentioned in passing in Herne 1 (para. 2.1).
Core participant; represented by Slater & Gordon.
|HN15||unknown||Mitting minded to refuse restriction orders over real & cover names. Closed hearing to be held to consider this. Previously, it was noted that the UCPI needed more details before making a decision.|| SDS UCO. Mentioned by Lambert as an SDS UCO who 'would have involvement in Stephen Lawrence campaign issues' (Ellison page 214).|
No application from MPS, but in March 2016 NH15's lawyer submitted an application to restrict real and cover names. The lawyers have since notified the Inquiry that a supplement to the application may be made on receipt of a final risk assessment from the MPS. The Inquiry has also received additional evidence, but is awaiting the further application before publishing anything. March 2016 application documents: personal statement (gisted), open application, draft order and risk assessment (gisted).
In November 2017, Mitting noted:
The closed hearing in relation for this was held by the 20 December 2017; an Inquiry press release stated that Mitting had decided to refuse the application to restrict the release of both cover and real names of the officer and a ruling to this effect would be released in the New Year.
Represented by Slater & Gordon.
|HN16||unknown||Ruling: cover name to be released; real name to be restricted.|| SDS UCO
N16 is a core participant and represented by Slater & Gordon.
|N17||unknown||Minded-to: neither real or cover name can be published.|| SDS UCO, targeting right wing groups. Mentioned by Lambert as a contemporary of Peter Francis (early/mid 1990s) who infiltrated far right groups (Ellison, p. 214).
Mitting stated in his Minded-To:
An application for restriction order over real and cover names had been made; supporting evidence supplied to Inquiry, but has not been published.
|HN20||unknown||11 January 2018, directions issued for any application for restriction orders to be submitted by 30 & 31 January 2018 for MPS and Designated Lawyers Team respectively.|
|HN21||unknown||11 January 2018, directions issued for any application for restriction orders to be submitted by 30 & 31 January 2018 for MPS and Designated Lawyers Team respectively.|
|HN23||unknown||Minded-To: Neither real or cover names can be released (Nov 2017). The Restriction order application is listed to be heard in open hearing on 5 February 2018.|| SDS UCO in 1990s.
According to Mitting (Nov 2017):
An application for restriction order over real and cover names had been made; supporting evidence supplied to Inquiry, and published on 4 January 2018: Open application for restriction order Open risk assessment and a heavily redacted Open impact statement.
The Risk Assessment reveals that N23 is not a core participant in the Inquiry, and that he has previously been the subject of a misconduct investigation, which councluded with no case to answer. He says he has not been in sexual relationships. 'There was always an assumption of anonymity, but never a formal guarantee or assurance.' The increased risk of the cover or real name confirmed is assessed to be 'critical ... resulting in a life threatening injury, and more likely death, and the only security measure left would be immediate extraction and re-location.'
In their Impact Statement, N23 says he is not on any form of social media and has actively avoided being on it as a consequence of his role withing the SDS. He is also trying to prevent any photograph being put online leading back to his family and himself. He is worried the press will turn up, and worried what friends and family will think about the fact that he could not talk about the work he was doing:
|N24||unknown||Extension sought to be deal with in a future tranche.||SDS Management. N81 stated to Op. Herne: 'I was informed, at the height of the Macpherson Inquiry, that my reporting was going straight to Sir Paul Condon’s desk each morning via N24, and N127 (SDS Sgt) passed on to me from N24 congratulations from the Commissioner for your excellent reporting...' (Ellison, p. 232).|
|HN25||unknown||11 January 2018, directions issued for any application for restriction orders to be submitted by 30 & 31 January 2018 for MPS and Designated Lawyers Team respectively.|
|HN26||unknown||Ruling: restrict real name, release cover name (Dec 2017).|| SDS UCO (early/mid 1990s).
They were a Special Branch officer prior to being recruited to SDS and 'promised lifelong anonymity along with personal safety assurances'. According to the 1994/1995 SDS annual review, cited by Herne I, N26 was the first officer to obtain a completely fictitious identity with the practice of using identities of deceased children being phased out starting November 1994 (5.4).
An application for full anonymity for HN26 had been made in March 2016: In August 2017, the Metropolitan Police applied to restrict HN26's reall name only  while HN26's solicitors (S&G) applied for both cover and real names to be subject to a restriction order. HN26 has not cooperated with the risk assessment, refusing to meet the risk assessor and providing information only through his lawyer.
A closed session for on HN26's restriction order applications was to be held 'due to sensitivity of material being considered' / 'detailed factors particular to this officer's circumstances' and Mitting directed that NH26 should be present or at least contactable throughout the hearing. This hearing took place by 14 November, with legal representatives for HN26 (S&G), the MPS and the Inquiry in attendance.
An unpublished closed note was stated to provide more detailed reasons.
The accompanying press release noted also:
HN26's application was heard at the hearing of 21 November 2017 and Mitting ruled in favour of releasing the cover name but restricting the real name on 5 December 2017. Mitting stated that at this point it was not necessary for the Inquiry to fulfil its terms to release HN26's real name, though additional reasons for the decision were also set out in the closed reasons of 23 October 2017. The Restriction Order was released on 8 December 2017.
August 2017 material: MPS have applied to MPS application to restrict real name (MPS), application to restrict both cover and real names (S&G), expert medical evidence (Dr Walter Busuttil, fully redacted), personal statement (fully redacted) & risk assessment (Graham Walker, mostly redacted).
Core participant; represented by Slater & Gordon.
|N27||unknown||SDS Undercover. Ellison cites Lambert's interview with Operation Herne as saying: "N27 (also deployed into a different left-wing group) and would have come across Peter Francis, certainly both were at Welling…" (Ellison, p. 214).|
|HN33||unknown||Extent of restriction sought unclear; MPS to clarify.|
|HN34||unknown||Real name to be published.||SDS Management / back office staff. No restriction order application made.|
|N40||unknown||Minded-To: Neither real name or cover name to be published (Nov 2017). The Restriction order application is listed to be heard in open hearing on 5 February 2018.|| SDS UCO. Mentioned in relation to how information from the SDS, particularly on the identities of protestors, was passed on to the rest of the police (Herne II, 13.4, 24.1.3).
In November 2017, Mitting stated:
Documents published 4 January 2018: Open application for restriction order, Open risk assessment, Open medical evidence (gisted), Open impact statement (Dec. 2015) and Open impact statement (Aug. 2017), the latter two both heavily redacted.
The Risk Assessment reveals that HN40 is not a core participant in the Inquiry and that there is no evidence of misconduct.
In their Impact Statement, N40 gives a detailed account of what he was promised, how isolated the SDS deployment was from any other police work, and how the MPS let him down afterwards. N40 is diagnosed with PTSD and says his health has deteriorated significantly between the two Impact Statements (Dec 2015 and Aug 2017).
|N43||Peter Francis||Confirmed.||Mentioned in Herne I (3.5, 3.6) though not by real name; his identity can be inferred as he was the only former undercover who provided a video interview to the Guardian.|
|N45||unknown||Minded-To: cover name can be published, but not real name (Nov 2017).|| SDS UCO & Management. Currently in 70s they were deployed against groups in the 1970s, from which there is no known allegation of misconduct. Later had an administrative role in SDS in 1982-1983 which involved collation & internal distribution of intelligence reports, but 'not the tasking of undercover officers or target group selection.'
Mitting noted (Nov 2017):
Closed reasons were also provided. On 4 January 2018 Open application for restriction order was released, but not Impact statement or Risk Assessment.
|N52||unknown||SDS sergeant, who in 1998 received the memo from Bob Lambert on the meeting between Richard Walton and N81 (Ellison Review, p. 229).|
|N53||unknown||SDS Management. Authored a series of internal memos in 2002 in relation to a joint operation with the National Criminal Intelligence Service known as Op. Wisdom - in relation to the use of the 'Jackal run' process of using a deceased person's identity to obtain passports. "N53 explained that he believed that between 1968 and 2002 there had been one hundred and two (102) SDS officers who had been provided with covert identities. N53’s documentation stated that the majority of these UCO’s would have used a deceased child’s identity." (Herne I, 5.4 & 6.2). Mentioned as an ex-SDS Detective Inspector in relation to material being passed onto other units: Another ex-Detective Inspector, N53, told Herne: “The SDS retained nothing that would betray its identity” (Ellison, p. 201). Briefly mentioned in relation to computerisation of SDS / Special Branch records circa 1998 (Herne II, 13.1).|
|HN56||unknown||Extent of restriction sought unknown; MPS to clarify.|
|HN58||unknown|| Fluid situation. Currently Mitting minded-to restrict both real and cover names.
Initially Mitting minded to restrict both cover and real name (Aug 2017). This position changed to considering publishing both cover and real name by separating the two; further submissions invited (Oct 2017). This changed again in November 2017, with the then minded-to suggesting publishing real name but not cover name - with further submissions invited and possibly a short closed hearing to take place.. Following the hearing of 21st November, Mitting said a closed hearing would take place before he made a ruling. This hearing took place by 20 December 2017, after which Mitting stated he was 'minded-to' restrict both the real and cover name of HN58.
| SDS UCO & manager - was DCI in charge of unit 1997-2001 (considered a managerial position). Now aged over 60.
In August 2017 open applications from the MPS & HN58's lawyer to restrict cover and real names were published and accompanied by a personal statement, expert medical report & additional threat assessments. Mitting in his 'Minded-To' indicated he would accept both applications, stating (Aug 2017, para. 4):
In October 2017, Mitting noted submissions from other non-police core participants and wrote:
HN58's application was heard at the hearing of 21 November 2017 where discussion revolved around the fact that HN58 was important both as an undercover officer and also a manager of the SDS at the time of the spying on the Stephen Lawrence campaign. This has caused a tension for the Inquiry Chair over how to apply the principles he has set out whereby senior officers involved with the spying on the Lawrences should give evidence in their real name but for undercovers, generally cover name only should be released if there is a risk. There were closed reasons also affecting Mitting's reasonings. On 5 December 2017, Mitting said a closed hearing would take place before ruling on the application.
The closed hearing was heard by 20 December 2017, following which the UCPI stated in a press release that Mitting was 'minded-to' grant the application restricting both HN58's real and cover names, saying:
In the accompanying 'Minded-To' note, Mitting stated in relation to HN58's application for anonymity:
August 2017 application: open application for restriction order, open supplementary application for restriction order, open risk assessment (David Reid), medical statement (Prof. G. C. Fox; fully redacted)
Core participant in the Inquiry, represented by Slater & Gordon.
Though his names are not known, HN58 appears under his cypher in a number of related documents.
MPS risk assessment:
Ellison Review: Head of SDS in August 1998 as Detective Chief Inspector, when he received Lambert's report on the meeting between N81 and Richard Walton. In response, he commented: "An excellent meeting and a good example of the strides N81 has made over the last 12 months" (Ellison, page 229). Author of an SDS Intelligence Update in September 1998, titled 'Extremist involvement in the Stephen Lawrence Campaign' where he wrote: "N81’s unique insight into the behind-the-scenes machinations of the Lawrence campaign has also proved invaluable to A/DI Walton who is currently attached to the Stephen Lawrence review team" (Ellison, page 229).
PCC Investigation: HN58 was one of those investigated for gross misconduct by the IPCC following formal referral by the MPS in the wake of the 2014 Ellison Review's criticism of the meeting between Richard Walton and N81. In this investigation, HN58 was given the cypher N34 and it was noted he was "responsible for the management of officers deployed within Special Branch, including officers deployed within the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS) who worked undercover" (para.148). The report state HN58 was promoted to Detective Chief Inspector rank in 1997 and transferred to SDS in mid-1998, with Det. Insp. Bob Lambert working under him (para. 152, 194). In this, he answered to Detective Superintendent 'N35', who oversaw 'S Squad' which included the SDS (para. 190). He retired in 2001 (para. 152). HN58 was aware of the meeting between Walton and N81, though did not consider it inappropriate at the time (para. 158, 194).
During the IPCC investigation, HN58 was interviewed but declined to answer questions, though later provided a written statement (para. 151). The IPCC subsequently said there was not enough documentary or witness evidence (para. 217) to proceed with misconduct hearings against HN58 so on balance of probabilities there was no case to answer in respect of authorising the meeting between Lambert and N81, though there was retrospective knowledge of it. However, the author of the report did state: "With such a close working relationship between Robert Lambert and N34, it is inconceivable that Robert Lambert would have been able to make the arrangements for this meeting to take place without some knowledge on the part of N34" (para. 214). The author also noted that the meeting was initiated within the SDS itself, which leaves HN35, and his two superiors N34 and Colin Black in the frame (para. 219, 220).
|HN61||unknown||Minded-To: real name to be published (15 Jan 2018)||SDS back office staff / manager only. No application for a restriction order was made.|
|HN64||unknown||Minded-To: restrict both cover & real names (Nov 2017)|| SDS UCO in the 1990s where they were deployed against one group and reported on others.
Mitting noted in Nov 2017: The deployment posed risks to HN64’s life and safety which, to an extent which cannot be precisely quantified, remain. The risks are explained in the closed note which accompanies these reasons. Nothing short of anonymity in respect of both real and cover names could obviate those risks. I would not be justified in running them. It is unavoidable that the evidence of HN64 will be given in closed session.
|HN66||unknown||15 Jan 2018, granted more time to provide the Inquiry with information in relation to their restriction order application. Full application delayed so minded to decision cannot yet be reached.|
|N67||unknown||SDS UCO (1981-1984). Used dead child identity; said at time of deployment there was no training manual but there was a 'best practice' reference folder (Herne I, 7.4 & 7.5).|
|HN68||unknown||Ruling (Dec 2017): real name cannot be published, cover name to be released.|| SDS UCO & managerial; deceased. Deployed against groups from 1968 to 1974. Managerial position in SDS 1982-84.
Cover name to be published, however, Mitting states: "As in the case of the living officers cited it is unlikely that the publication of his real name would prompt the giving or production of evidence necessary to permit the Inquiry to fulfil its terms of reference. Evidence about the discharge of his managerial duties can be given by reference to his cypher. The identity of HN68 is known to those who can give such evidence. Publication of his real name would be likely to interfere with the right of his widow to respect for her private life under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (‘the European Convention’). It is unlikely that such interference would be justified under Article 8(2). The possibility that disclosure of his cover name might interfere with her right is nil or negligible. Closed reasons accompany this note."
The MPS have submitted an application to restrict N68's real name, a witness statement from his widow and an open risk assessment (Mark Veljovic). The above information on N68 comes from Mitting's 'Minded-To' note, and does not appear in the risk assessment.
The restriction order application over HN68's real name was heard at the hearing of 21 November 2017, and the restriction order issued on 8 December 2017. In granting the order, Mitting followed the reasons set out in his minded-to note of 3 August 2017.
As he deceased, HN68 is not a core participant.
|N69||unknown||SDS Chief Inspector (1986-1987). In his statement to Op. Herne stated '…new recruits were instructed on how to go about obtaining false birth certificates. They would obtain details of a deceased person of a similar age from Somerset House and then use those details to go about creating their legend.' (Herne I, 3.1)|
|HN72 / N72||unknown||Extension sought to deal with in a future tranche.||SDS. Provided evidence that N81's tasking to spy on the Lawrence family came from Commissioner Stevens (Ellison, p. 253; Herne II, 21.1.15 & 21.2). Operation Herne told Ellison that N72 did not serve with SDS until after the Macpherson Inquiry so his account should be treated as hearsay; Stevens also denied this (Ellison, p. 253).|
|N78||unknown||Extent of restriction sought unclear; extension sought for MPS to supply application.||SDS UCO. Joined Special Branch in 1986 and SDS in 1991. Deployed as an undercover into left-wing groups Summer 1991 to 1995, including some near the Lawrence campaign; had left the SDS by 1996 (Herne II, 12.2; Ellison, 6.4). Aware of Peter Francis' role; said he heard nothing indicating material to smear the Lawrences was being sought (Herne II, 21.1.14; Ellison, 6.3(p), 6.4). Considerable material from him covered in section 6.4 of the Ellison Review (Vol.1).|
|HN81 / N81||unknown||Ruling: Real name cannot be published, cover name and group targeted will be done in time.|| SDS UCO. Referred to extensively in the Ellison Review in relation to the targeting of the family of Stephen Lawrence.
On joining the SDS he received a home visit from two officers who affirmed he would have anonymity for the rest of their career. During his time undercover he would have twice-weekly meetings with his handlers, and following the end of his deployment he returned to Special Branch.
Details of N81's restriction order applications can be found at the N81 in the Undercover Policing Inquiry page.
N81 is a core participant and is represented by Slater & Gordon.
|N85||Roger Pearce||Confirmed.||SDS UCO & manager. Head of Special Branch and Director of Intelligence for Metropolitan Police Service. See under profile for mentions of him in Herne I and the Ellison Review.|
|N86||unknown||Extent of restriction sought unclear; extension sought for MPS to supply application.|| SDS Head from 1993 to 1996, as Detective Chief Inspector; responsibilities included SDS recruitment & tasking. Author of a dcocument of 24 Sept 1993 referring to a 'new, violent anti-fascist group forming within Youth Against Racism'. Also authored the 1993/1994 SDS Annual Report which discussed left-wing campaigning around the death of Stephen Lawrence.|
Left SDS for another post on 11 April 1996. On 21 April 1997 he took temporary control for six months of S Squad (the division which contained the SDS) due to illness of its Suptintendent.
Refused to provide a statement to Operation Herne. However, as he is central to the claims of Peter Francis regarding racism in the SDS and the tasking against the Lawrence family, N86 provided a statement for the Ellison Review in which he denied much of what Francis said. (Ellison 6.5 & 6.9(c)-(d); Herne II, 26.1.19)
|N88||unknown||Minded-To (Nov 2017): cover name to be published (application to restrict refused), real name to be restricted.|| SDS UCO. Deployed against community-based support groups in 1980s.
Application to restrict both cover and real names made with accompanying risk assessement and personal impact statement (all unpublished).
Mitting noted (Nov 2017): 
A closed note was also issued setting out further details.
|N89||unknown||SDS UCO; infiltrated far right in 1990s and 'involved in public order situations where left and right attended'; contemporary of Peter Francis who would confide in N89.|
|HN89||unknown||Minded-to (Nov 2017): real & cover name to be published.|| SDS UCO. Deceased and no application made to restrict details.
Note from URG: Not clear if this is the same person as N89, mentioned in Ellison.
|HN99||unknown||Real name to be published||SDS Management / back office. No application for restriction made.|
