Dr Duff - Now an assistant professor of politics at the University of Nottingham - was trying to give a " know your rights" legal advice card to a 15-year-old boy in London when officers accused her of obstruction and arrested her. The Boy was found to have a knife, which Dr Duff had not been aware of when she intervened.
On CCTV footage, officers can be heard laughing about her hair, clothes and talking about her underwear. In one clip, one officer references a smell And Then a different officer says " Oh, it's her knickers".
Dr Duff - who was 24 at The Time - Made a civil claim against the Metropolitan Police for The Way she was treated and and " sincerely apologised" for the " sexist, derogatory and unacceptable language used".
" While they were doing That they were cracking jokes with each another, for example about the benefits of strapless bras when they were talking about whether to cut off my underwear. The overwhelming feeling of it was physical pain and I was terrified.
" They were kneeling on me with their full weight and they had my hands in cuffs and they were jerking them around behind my back. My wrists and arms were completely Cut Up from this, I had quite extensive injuries. "
But She Said : " I don't see how stripping me would reveal my identity in any way apart from they wanted to soften me up, to kind of intimidate me into telling them my details, and to Punish Me for Standing Up for a young person's rights.
Speaking about CCTV footage she managed to obtain years after The Search - That showed officers laughing about her hair, saying her clothes stink and talking about her underwear - Dr Duff said " it was really clear they were trying to humiliate me" and the comments were " a peephole into culture of misogyny".

Because they said, 'oh you clenched your fists and you were holding your arms rigid'. I was terrified and My Body was kind of seizing up. "
" What I've experienced over The Past eight years is a legal system which is absolutely Set Up to protect The Police from accountability and to prevent complaints from getting anywhere, to just disappear them into a bureaucratic abyss. "
She also referenced the murder of Sarah Everard by a serving Police Officer in 2021, which led to a discussion on confidence in policing
Dr Duff said: " After The Rape and murder of Sarah Everard, The Police put out statements saying women should challenge officers they think are behaving in a dodgy way, kind of again putting the onus On Women in a victim blaming way, saying you know, if you don't challenge them and stand up for your Legal Rights then That 's The Reason you might be raped and murdered.
