State-of-the-art technology has helped police capture exclusive footage of police riot training in action, offering a fascinating insight into the dangers faced by public order officers at West Midlands Police.
During a recent exercise at the force’s training ground in Shropshire a GoPro camera was attached to the chest of Sergeant Russell Webb as he led a team through a full-scale disorder scenario.
He was charged with managing the group of officers as they brought an angry mob of petrol-bomb throwing thugs − played by colleagues − under control, inside a disused aircraft hangar.
The 14-minute operation was recorded first-hand from Sgt Webb’s perspective on body-worn video and has been edited into a short film.
