The athlete Bianca Williams is considering legal action against the Metropolitan Police, alleging they racially profiled her when she was stopped with her partner driving in London on Saturday.

The couple had their 3 month-old baby in the car when they were stopped, searched and handcuffed by police officers.

Scotland Yard says the driver sped off when asked to stop and that there was no concern about the officers’ conduct.
