Two police officers are under criminal investigation after the death of former Aston Villa star Dalian Atkinson who died after he was shot with a Taser.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission said the West Mercia officers had also been served with gross misconduct notices.

Mr Atkinson died shortly after being shot following an altercation in Meadow Close, Trench, in Telford on Monday.
