Bodycam footage shows pregnant Traveller's Cardiff arrest

A race charity wants a fresh investigation into the arrest of a pregnant woman from an Irish Traveller family.

Bodycam footage of the arrest in December 2017 was obtained through a Freedom of Information request.

Race Equality First is unhappy no female officer or mental health support worker was in attendance - and Minnie Moloney, 25, was not allowed to get dressed before being led away in handcuffs wearing only a dressing gown.

Ms Moloney, who has severe mental health issues, was released without charge in connection with a row at a shop in Cardiff six weeks earlier.

South Wales Police said the officers' actions were "proportionate and necessary".
