6. What Should I Do Next?

You should write down the facts of the incident as soon as possible, including as much detail as you can about the police officers involved. If you know of any witnesses get them to do the same. You should see a doctor if you have any injuries. Check for video footage on the internet.

Ring us and we can:

  • put an appeal for witnesses up on our website
  • put you in touch with a good solicitor
  • link you up with any other people who might have an interest in your case

Please do not phone us if your claim does not arise from taking part in protest.
We will not be able to assist you.

It’s also worth taking a moment to read an excellent leaflet that LDMG have produced on suing the police.

Gathering Evidence

Your chances of succeeding in holding the police to account are better the more evidence you can get:

  • Video footage
  • CCTV footage
  • Witness statements
  • Photographs
  • Doctors note

So start gathering now!
