What is a police 'hard stop'?

The BBC's Danny Shaw explains how police conduct a hard stop - which was the kind of tactic used when Mark Duggan was pulled over.

Mark Duggan, whose death sparked riots in England in 2011, was lawfully killed, an inquest jury has said by a majority of 8 to 2.

The 29-year-old was killed in August 2011 in Tottenham, north London, after police stopped a taxi in which he was travelling.

Using footage from a training exercise conducted by the National Crime Agency, the BBC's Danny Shaw explains how police conduct a hard stop - which was the kind of tactic used when Mark Duggan was pulled over.
