Norman Lamb has called for an urgent review of the use of tasers by police officers, following the death of former footballer Dalian Atkinson.
In June, Lamb called for an outright ban on the use of tasers in mental health settings, and tabled amendments to the Policing and Crime Bill to introduce such a ban. In response to last night's death, however, he is now calling for an urgent national review of tasers and electroshock weapons in all settings.
