Police have apologised to the family of a severely-autistic man who was allegedly beaten by two officers as he helped put out the bins.
Faruk Ali, 33, who has had learning difficulties and severe autism since childhood, has always enjoyed helping binmen collect the rubbish outside his family’s home.
He was doing that on February 20 when his family claim he was attacked by two uniformed officers.
They allege he was hurled into the bins and and pinned down as he tried to get back inside his home in Luton, Beds.
