A police officer used a 50,000-volt Taser gun on a man suffering an epileptic fit, it has been revealed.

A major investigation is under way after the 40-year-old complained that he had been the victim of excessive force.

He had collapsed as he suffered a seizure at a gym and paramedics had been called to deal with the incident.

But they asked for police back-up after the man allegedly started biting and punching them.

When police arrived at the gym – which is in a secondary school in south Manchester – one officer discharged a Taser at least once into the man.

The man, who was physically restrained by officers, was transferred to hospital an hour after he first collapsed.
