British man tasered repeatedly by police

The UK police watchdog has said it would launch a full independent investigation into the arrest of a man who was stunned a number of times by officers using a taser gun.

The incident occurred in the early hours of Monday when police were called to deal with a man who had been thrown out of a nightclub in Nottingham city centre, the Independent Police Complaints Commission said.
