A Metropolitan Police officer has been suspended and another placed on restricted duties after a video appeared to show one of them kneeling on man’s neck.

The force’s Deputy Commissioner Sir Steve House described the footage as “deeply disturbing” and said some of the techniques, which are “not taught in police training”, caused him “great concern”.

He said one of the officers involved has been suspended and the other removed from operational duty, while the incident has been passed to the police watchdog for investigation.
