Michael Foot will today accept a six-figure sum from the Sunday Times for claims made last year that the former Labour leader was considered by the KGB to be an "agent of influence".

Mr Foot instituted libel proceedings against the newspaper and its proprietor Rupert Murdoch when they refused to apologise for the allegation. The settlement will be finalised in a statement at the High Court.
