Officers removed from duties over 'excessive force' claims video
Police officers have been removed from their usual duties after concerns over the use of force in a video circulating on social media.
The footage shows an officer using a baton after a row breaks out between a man and plain-clothed policemen in Upper Sutton Street, Aston, Birmingham.
West Midlands Police said it was "treating this matter seriously".
The video was posted on Sunday by police monitoring campaign group Netpol.
