Desperate backpedalling

from the IPCC.

The police watchdog has said its chairman was wrong to say there was no CCTV footage of an alleged police assault at the G20 protests.

What he probably means is that the cameras were turned off.

However, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has now said that although Mr Hardwick believed he was correct at the time, it now appeared there were cameras in the surrounding area.

They're desperate for this all to go away, aren't they?

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Never mind the CCTV, which we were told in advance had to be switched off because they failed to reach the right spec ( yeah, right ) but what of the phalanx of police cameras and video tapers that are usually around ?
Did plod decide in advance that they were more interested in kicking ass at G20 than merely identifying protesters ?
