  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Police used ‘justified’ force on man who died, inquest jury finds” – below is their description.

    In CCTV images played in court, Andrew Hall shouts, “Help me – I’m being killed.”

    He was a black man who died shortly after he’d been restrained by police for two hours. Leg restraints, handcuffs and a spit hood were used.

    Today, a jury at the inquest concluded the actions of police in Huddersfield were “justified, necessary and proportionate”.

    But in her only interview, Andrew Hall’s partner has told this programme she believes race was a factor. She describes what happened as unforgivable.

    Warning: There are distressing images in this exclusive report.
