A video has emerged that appears to show two police officers using CS gas to arrest four men who were part of a group which the force said had become 'aggressive'.

The officers pulled over a vehicle in Shadwell, east London, and soon the situation became heated, with the group of men shouting at the officers and a scuffle breaking out, as reported by Police Hour..

One of the Met Police officers was briefly floored during the altercation but quickly got back to his feet.

The video, shot from a nearby balcony, has been uploaded to the Police Hour YouTube account. It shows the men surrounding the officers as they were restraining two of their friends.

The officers used CS spray to keep the men back during the altercation. The situation was eventually resolved when back-up police vehicles arrived on the scene.

The force said: "Whilst officers were speaking with the driver, a large group of males began arguing with them.

"The males became more aggressive. Two police constables were treated for minor injuries.

"Four males were arrested on suspicion of various offences including assault on police, obstruction and Public Order Act offences.

"CS spray was deployed during the arrests. Enquiries continue."

The video was taken on 3 August and the full context of the video is still unclear.
