Following the widely reported incident at the London Greek Embassy, one of several that day, on Monday 8 December – and a barage of damning articles and statements from the NUJ, BJP, Journalism.co.uk and Press Gazette, The Metropolitan Police Force have immediately called for an investigation into the incident that was caught by myself on film, while delivering footage to Sky News and Associated Press.
