MAN WAS ALREADY CUFFED WHEN TAZERED

Colin Headley, the taxi driver who videoed the scene on his mobile phone, told a local radio station, Trent FM, that he was shocked by what had happened.

“He was Tasered three times, he was cuffed at the time, he was pretty much out of it I think. While all that was happening he was getting three punches to the head. There was no crowd at first, once they started punching, a crowd appeared.”

Mr Headley said he made the video public because he felt that the police actions were “obviously wrong” and needed to be brought to wider attention.

This follows the reports of the Met waterboarding “drug suspects” earlier in the week.
