Wheelchair protester: IPCC partially upholds complaint

The police complaints watchdog has partially upheld a complaint from a protester dragged along a road after being removed from his wheelchair.

The IPCC said Jody McIntyre might have been assaulted by an officer using excessive force, but said it was too late to prosecute.

Mr McIntyre was taking part in student fees protests in December 2010.

In May Scotland Yard cleared officers who had moved Mr McIntyre based on the "perceived risk" to him.

Tom Symonds reports.
