This is the horrifying moment a policeman and his colleague are savagely beaten in a brutal attack on a south London street.
One of the men (pictured in navy) can be seen brutally fly-kicking the female officer (in black and white uniform on the ground) as she rushes in to try and help her stricken colleague.
In mobile phone footage posted on Twitter two men can be seen punching and kicking the male and female officer as scores of people pass without intervening.
The shocking incident in Merton, south west London on Saturday night, saw the two male attackers wearing hoodies and dragging the policeman away from his patrol car and kicking him.
The assault comes amid London’s violent crimewave, with the capital’s murder count reaching 122 so far this year over the weekend.
Police numbers have been called into question after the number of stabbings and shootings across London spiralled out of control.
