Police say arrest of man driving home after Channel 4 News interview about police racism was lawful

In May we interviewed a young man about his views on police racism, and his recent experience of a stop and search.

On his way home from that interview – Ryan Colaço was stopped and searched again – with officers smashing his car window while arresting him.

City of London police now accept the state in which his car was returned to him was “unacceptable” but insist his arrest was lawful.

Campaigners say its just one example of discrimination in policing.
