A woman whose one-year-old child was wrenched from her arms by police officers in New York is to receive a cash settlement from the city.

A video showing Jasmine Headley lying on the floor as officers attempt to wrestle the child from her arms went viral in December 2018, prompting a police investigation.

She had been sitting on the floor of a social services office and was asked to leave - when she refused police became involved and tried to take her child from her.

Days after the incident, Mayor Bill de Blasio apologised to her publicly and the case has now been settled after she was awarded $625,000.
