Three Greater Manchester Police officers attack Lance Corporal Mark Aspinall, ‘highly praised by his commanding officer for bravery against the Taliban in Afghanistan’. One officer is seen banging Aspinall’s head on the ground then grabbed his hair and scraped his face on the ground. He also strikes the Lance Corporal several times with his forearm.

Despite all this he was charged with assault on police officers. This charge was later quashed in Crown Court. Mr Aspinal said “I remember thinking, ‘I’m going to die here. I can’t believe I’ve survived Afghanistan and Iraq and now I’m going to die on this main road in my home town at the hands of the police. Yet I was the one who ended up in the dock, not the officers.”
