Sir Paul Stephenson, the Metropolitan police commissioner, has faced an increasing pressure for the emerged footage of an officer not wearing ID at the protests.

A video taken by Chris Dowdeswell, a web developer protester, at the London demonstration on Thursday shows an officer not wearing identification. He posted the video footage later on YouTube, according to the Guardian.

“We were in the kettle from the beginning on Parliament Square…We were walking to the different police lines trying to find out what was going on, and someone told me we should film this one officer who was without her lapel numbers, without her identifying marks. When we questioned her at first, just before we started filming, she said: ‘I’m a human being, not a f***ing number’,” Dowdeswell said.

During the G20 demonstrations last year, Ian Tomlinson died being pushed to the ground by a police officer who was not wearing ID. After that incident Stephenson said it was “absolutely unacceptable” if any officer covers or removes their shoulder tags displaying their identification numbers.

Dowdeswell aims to draw the world’s attention to the violation of human rights and also the police corruption and violence by taking video of the officer “looked awkward and embarrassed”.

Stephenson offered to resign after Prince Charles’s Rolls Royce was attacked on Oxford Street, according to the Sunday Times. The commissioner had reportedly “made it clear that if [the palace] thought he should resign, he would do so”.
