The Police Ombudsman has been informed of a video which appears to show a woman being dragged from her wheelchair in Lurgan Park by two police officers, the PSNI has said.

The video, which commenters have said shows officers "trailing a disabled girl from her wheelchair in Lurgan Park and dragging her across a field like a dog," appeared on social media last night.

Commenting to Your Lurgan, Assistant Chief Constable Bobby Singleton said: “We are aware of a video which has appeared on social media showing part of an incident involving two of our officers and a member of the public.

“This has given rise to serious community concerns.

“The full circumstances of this incident are currently being assessed and the Police Ombudsman has been notified. There are no further details at this time.”
