    Greater Manchester police have launched an internal investigation after a teenager said an officer throttled him following a protest on Saturday. Footage of the incident shows the student pressed against a police van by three officers, one of whom he says held him by his throat. ‘I genuinely thought he wanted to kill me,’ the student said. ‘That’s all I could read from his body language and his eyes and his facial expressions – he just kept squeezing.’ The 18-year-old was taken to another police van across the street, searched and detained for breach of the peace before being released.
