A man who was wrongfully arrested and falsely imprisoned by West Yorkshire Police after a night out has spoken of his anger.

Barry Fulthorpe, 63, won a long battle to prove that officers unlawfully locked him up and used excessive force to do so after taking his case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

The former handyman, from Headingley, who has no criminal record, is now suing the police for damages – including injuries he says were caused to his wrists by handcuffs.
