Home Affairs Correspondent

The trial of two police officers over the death of a retired footballer has heard how the victim was Tasered for six times the amount he should have been.

Dalian Atkinson died in 2016 after the police were called to his father’s home in Telford.

We report from Birmingham, where the trial opened today.
