The man tried to escape on foot after his car came to a stop on Kent Road, Heeley.

The two-minute video shows the moment after he initially got away before he was wrestled to the ground when more police arrived.

After another struggle, during which an officer can be seen hitting out at the man, he flops over as three police stand over him.

Five more officers then arrive before a uniformed officer seemingly collapses and receives help from colleagues.
