The police watchdog is investigating excessive use of force after a young father fleeing police died after he was wrestled to the floor by an officer.

Scotland Yard said the 20-year-old man, named by his family as Rashan Jermaine Charles, was trying to 'swallow an object' and an officer was trying to prevent him from harming himself.

Footage of the arrest when viral across the internet after a friend of the family shared it, late last night. It shows the moments that followed after Mr Charles ran into the store, in Kingsland Road, east London at 1.45am yesterday morning after failing to stop for police.
