A Very Public Affair, London


An excerpt from Filthy London.

At this flat in May 1973 Lord Lambton, under-secretary of state at the Ministry of Defence, was caught on film smoking marijuana in bed with prostitute Norma Levy. Explaining this indiscretion to MI5, the peer explained that everyone needed an outlet, his being ‘vigorous gardening [and] debauchery.’
