Police shot diabetic in coma with Taser - because they thought he was suicide bomber

A diabetic in a coma and in need of urgent medical attention was shot with a stun gun by police who feared he was a suicide bomber.

Nicholas Gaubert's bizarre ordeal happened just six days after the July 7 bombings with the country in a state of high alert.

But apart from wearing a rucksack and being on a bus, he is bewildered as to how he could be mistaken for a terrorist.

Last night he accused police of using him for "target practice".
