A man who died after being tasered by police in Manchester has been named locally as 23-year-old factory worker Jordan Begley. He is said to have suffered a "medical episode" and died after police fired at him with the stun gun.
Officers responded to reports of a disturbance at about 8.15pm on Wednesday in Gorton, east Manchester, and used the Taser while detaining the man. The police force referred the case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
