Video: London police release new 'Plebgate' footage

Police in London released CCTV footage on September 1 of an incident that led to the resignation of the British government’s chief whip in 2012. Conservative MP Andrew Mitchell was alleged to have used expletives and to have called police officers “plebs” after they refused to allow him to cycle out the main gate of Downing Street. He admitted to swearing, but has denied using the word “plebs”. In the footage, Mitchell can be seen approaching the gate from 1.05. Credit: London Metropolitan Police
