Officers face charges over an attack on Babar Ahmad
Four police officers will face prosecution over an alleged attack on a terror suspect, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has said.

Babar Ahmad, 36, an IT worker, alleged he was beaten and verbally abused when arrested in Tooting on 2 December 2003.

Mr Ahmad, who was not charged following the raid, was awarded 60,000 damages last March by the Metropolitan Police.

Simon Clements, from the CPS, said there was "sufficient evidence" to charge four of the officers.
