A man believed to be a Scotland supporter was Tasered and arrested after plunging from the fourth floor of a London hotel.
Police were called last night over reports of a guest ‘throwing items from a window’.
By the time officers arrived, he had tumbled from height at the hotel near Hyde Park. Fortunately, his fall was broken and he mostly suffered injuries to his hands.
Two officers were injured as the man fell and he was stunned with a Taser and detained.
He was taken to hospital but was taken into custody after being discharged.
In a series of tweets, Westminster Police said: ‘We were called at around 9.40pm on Friday to a man throwing items from the window of a hotel in Lancaster Gate, W2. It was also reported that the man had injuries to his hands.
