Met Police chief Cressida Dick has urged members of the public to "get involved" if they see officers being attacked in the street. She said it was "absolutely awful" that bystanders filmed attacks on officers and uploaded them to the internet without intervening. The Met Commissioner was speaking on Nick Ferrari LBC radio show today and asked people to do more to help police officers in need. Her plea came after a video of a police officer being assaulted with a flying kick was captured on a mobile phone and then circulated on social media. She said: "What we seem to be seeing now is not only police officers being assaulted, but sometimes crowds gathering and then some people filming, laughing, joking."
