Speaking by telephone from the back of the police van as he was driven away, Ray said: "I have been roughed up. They dragged me, pulled me and knocked me to the ground. Now they are filming me."
He could then be heard asking the officers with him: "Why are you filming? I am a British journalist. I have all the Olympic accreditation I need." Police officers could then be heard asking: "What's your opinion on Tibet?" Ray replied: "I have no opinion on Tibet. I am a journalist."
A police officer could then be heard telling him he was not allowed to use his telephone. The line went dead.
