This is the shocking moment a police officer 'kneed a 14-year-old boy in the stomach and threw him on the ground' after he looked like he tried to stop his friend from being arrested.

The video, which has gone viral online, appears to show the officer striking the boy in the midriff or groin area after he attempted to help his friend by putting his hands on the policeman.

Kent Police said it arrested three teenagers during the incident in the Dane Park area of Margate on May 5, but it is now reviewing a complaint over one of the arrests.

Officers came to the area after several calls alleged that groups of young people, some possibly in possession of weapons, were planning to meet up.

Thousands of people have taken to social media to comment on the video, which now has around 700,000 views, with some defending the policeman's use of force, while others were critical.
