Total Disrespect: Video Released Of Riot Cops Being Run Over in UK

Dramatic CCTV footage of two police officers being knocked down by a car as they chased looters during last week's riots has been released.

The pair were hit by a green Citroen travelling at high speed in Waltham Forest, north east London - and one was struck so hard that his body armour came off.

Detectives investigating the attempted murder of the policemen said the footage has been released to encourage people to come forward and identify those responsible.

The officers were hit as they responded to reports of a group looting a clothing store at around 1am on August 8.

One of the policemen suffered knee and leg injuries and the other sustained shoulder injuries. (click here to watch the video)
