Has anyone seen Bianca Williams' video

This video clip is the video in question. My initial concern is the officer in the background with his baton ready for action. I know the police have a difficult job to do but surely this is openly antagonistic

They were stopped and then treated as they were, because they are black and were driving a black Mercs A Class. Racist pure and simple. That the Met then tried to justify the officer's actions is reprehensible.

Driving erratically on the wrong side of the road seems like a fair enough reason and she was hysterical. Sorry for the police.

Driving erratically on the wrong side of the road seems like a fair enough reason and she was hysterical.

Based on what BBC News say, it looks like the claim about the way they were driving was false, an excuse to try and justify their actions. Apparently, the Met are now trying to "reach out" to them.

Sky news reports

"In a statement, the Met Police said officers had seen a vehicle with blacked out windows that was driving on the wrong side of the road.

The force said the car was "driving suspiciously", had failed to stop, and then made off at speed.

But this account was rejected by Williams, who said the car was "never" on the wrong side of the road.

A Met Police spokesperson said: "Officers from the Directorate of Professional Standards have reviewed both footage from social media, and the body-worn video of the officers, and are satisfied that there is no concern around the officers' conduct."

Things should be clearer if or when the police release their footage of the incident.
