A 23-year-old who suffered a heart attack when he was Tasered by police has disputed a report that found the use of the stun gun was justified.
James McCarthy is suing Merseyside police after he was hit twice with a Taser at a hotel in Liverpool in September last year.
His solicitor, Sophie Khan, said: “James McCarthy does not accept the findings of the IPCC investigation. He disputes that the Taser use was justified. My client suffered a cardiac arrest as a result of the Taser and sustained a serious injury following the incident.
