As the Met Police trials spit hoods in London, this is what happened when Nick Ferrari tested out the controversial hoods - aimed at controlling suspects in custody.

Earlier this year, Sadiq Khan demanded a review into the use of the hoods after the Met Police announced their intention to start using them.

The item consists of a mesh hood which is placed over the head of aggressive people who have been arrested to stop them spitting at or biting a police officer.

Amnesty International have likened the hoods to those worn by Guantanamo Bay inmates.

Nick tried it out to show that there is nothing wrong with being made to wear one.

Speaking to the designer Paula Romano, Nick found that the mesh was especially light, while the plastic front was designed to fall as far from the mouth as possible.
