Have your say

The footage, captured by a student, shows the woman pinned down by a security guard and three members of staff at an Iceland store.

The woman was suspected of stealing food from the store in Prospect Shopping Centre in Hull when staff intervened.

Now the University of Hull student, who uploaded the clip to Facebook, says he believes the staff and security guard were too extreme in their reaction on Thursday.

He said: “I could see there was blood on the ground from where she fell over.
