            The incident occurred at Oval underground station in South London, where according to the police version of events the suspicious looking man approached the officers concerned exposing his forearm and tightening a tourniquet as he said ‘I am a drug addict, give me my smack or I’ll commit lots of crimes.’ 

            However independent witnesses have told a very different story. They describe the victim as just an ordinary commuter who had just picked up a free newspaper and swiped his Oyster card. ‘Suddenly five policeman jumped on him, wrestled him to the ground and repeatedly stabbed him using semi-automatic syringes’ said a passer-by. ‘They shouted ‘Take that, smackhead!’ and even when he was completely spaced out and obviously really high, they just kept pumping more and more heroin into him.’
