Police officers who fought back against Trump supporters at the US Capitol on 6 January have given evidence about the violence and hatred they experienced.

They were testifying at the first hearing of a Congressional committee set up to investigate the attack.

Capitol Police Officer, Harry Dunn, who is black, said he was taunted with a racial epithet by the mob.

At least five hundred and thirty five rioters have been arrested so far, but prosecutors have only secured a few convictions.

The inquiry is being conducted almost entirely by Democrats, after most Republicans boycotted the committee.

However, two Republicans; Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger have broken ranks to join the investigation.
