PC Mike Baillon has been awarded £430,000, after being forced to leave Gwent Police over a video of him that went viral in 2009. The video shows him chasing a car down country road, then stopping and attacking it with his truncheon.

After it was leaked on the web he said he became a laughing stock at work and couldn't carry on in the job.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
