    A policeman in London has been suspended after a black man secretly recorded officers allegedly racially abusing him with a string of insults.

    The 21-year-old says he made the recording on his mobile phone when he was arrested after last summer's riots.

    Al Jazeera's Peter Sharp reports from London.
