A police officer has been found guilty of the manslaughter of former professional footballer Dalian Atkinson.

PC Benjamin Monk tasered Mr Atkinson for 33 seconds, more than six times longer than the normal cycle, before kicking him at least twice in the head during a confrontation in August 2016.

Jurors at Birmingham Crown Court took more than 18 hours to reach unanimous verdicts on the manslaughter charge against Monk. They cleared him of Mr Atkinson’s murder.
