Merseyside Police 'Taser' officers dismissed

Merseyside Police has dismissed two officers after a man was wrongly arrested and Tasered five times in the back of a police van.

Kyle McArdle complained to the IPCC after officers detained him when they spotted him urinating in the street.

He was put in the back of a police van and hit with a Taser five times, after officers said he became violent.

CCTV footage did not corroborate the officers' version of events, and the IPCC upheld two complaints by Mr McArdle.
