“We know that this is a distressing video to watch, even more so as a child is seen to be visibly upset by the way in which his mother has been apprehended. We regret the upset that has been caused to the child.

Met Police Assistant Commissioner Matt Twist said in a statement: “The woman involved in this incident was asked to provide her ticket as she got off the bus, but did not do so. She was spoken to by a inspector, then by a PCSO and finally by a police officer. She continued to try to walk away and did not provide her ticket for inspection.
