Pioneer case for barrister

In a case which is believed to be the first of its kind, motorist Carl Josephs is suing West Midlands Police for racial harassment, claiming he was stopped 34 times in two years because he is black.

Josephs' barrister, Peter Herbert of Michael Mansfield QC's chambers at 14 Tooks Court, told Birmingham High Court it was the first time anybody had ever sued the police for harassment.

Josephs, who drives a red Metro car with two Jamaican flags and “One Love” written on the side, says he had to catch the bus to work and receive psychiatric treatment because of the trauma.
