boy released to freedom - crowd cheering
Several police surrounded the boy and marched him off away from friends and a frantic parent.
Members of the public saw what was happening and began to surround the police chanting "let him go". The police reacted violently as they lost control of the situation, and then set up cordons to keep the peaceful but angry crowd at bay while they searched the frightened young boy in a space between their vans.
After a tense stand-off for quarter of an hour, they eventually released the boy who was led away by a relieved parent amidst cheers from the crowd.
