Calls for Immediate Impartial Investigation of Ely Incident

Following the emergence of CCTV footage verified by the BBC that appears to show a police van following two people on an electric bike minutes before the fatal crash, the Welsh Liberal Democrats have called for South Wales Police to immediately publish their timeline of events involving a car crash and subsequent riots in Ely last night following.

Commenting Cardiff Liberal Democrat Leader Cllr Rodney Berman said:

“The emergence of this CCTV footage raises serious questions over the version events provided by South Wales Police and Police and Crime Commissioner Alun Michael and apparent contradictions within it.

“Given there is concern over the timeline provided of events leading up to the crash, which appears to contradict local reports and video evidence this incident needs to face an immediate, impartial investigation.

“I would also like to appeal to communities across Cardiff to remain calm and to allow appropriate actors to investigate. The last thing we need is for any innocent people to be caught up in the type of violence we saw last night.”
