Pinned to the ground by six policemen, because I couldn't pay my bus fare

Ann Roberts describes her brutal treatment at the hands of Met officers who wrongly accused her of fraud and being a crack cocaine user

'One of the officers pulled the chain from around my neck and broke it. It wasn't valuable but it was the force they used, the action. I ended up with a bleeding right hand and injuries to my arm and shoulder. I had to go to hospital next day.'
- Ann Roberts
