LONDON — Police in the United Kingdom said Monday they will investigate how a man managed to barrel full-steam into British Prime Minister David Cameron. A video of the incident shows a man running full-force into the U.K. leader as as Cameron braces for impact and security scrambles unsuccessfully to intercede.

West Yorkshire Police — who have authority for the city of Leeds, where the shove took place after a meeting to discuss high-speed rail service in northern England — initially said that a 28-year-old man was arrested in relation to the incident. "No threats were made, and after the man's details were checked, he was de-arrested and allowed on his way," the force said in a statement. But London's Metropolitan Police, whose specialist protection command oversees Cameron's personal security, said it will conduct a review of the incident.
