Police watchdog to probe bus fare arrest of mum by LeahMahon_

DISTRESS: There is widespread uproar over the video of woman being arrestedin front of her young son under suspicion of fare evasion will now be investigated, the Met’s Assistant Commissioner has said.

The shocking incident happened in Croydon, south London, last Friday but footage was only circulated on social media over the weekend. “It is clear from the video that has been shared online that this incident was distressing for the woman involved and particularly for her child. We understand why it has prompted significant public concern and we want to be transparent about our position and the role of our officers.

Twist added that when once TfL inspectors were able to check her ticket, she was de-arrested and handcuffs were removed. “Ticket inspection operations of this nature are difficult. They place police officers in direct confrontation with frustrated members of the public and could escalate what would otherwise be civil matters to a different level.”
