CCTV released of dying man Gong Ling Tang outside Dandenong police station

The Victorian Coroners Court has decided to release police surveillance vision of a drunk man who died after being left by officers outside Dandenong Police Station.

The footage shows Gong Ling Tang, 53, unable to walk as officers lead him outside in May 2010.

Victoria Police tried to prevent the footage from being released, but the coroner ruled it was in the public's interest.

Two of the officers in the footage refused to comment as they left the court.

Mr Tang's family has been desperately fighting to have the footage released to show how his dignity was never respected.

He can be seen clutching his stomach and he repeatedly presses an intercom button asking for assistance.

Coroner Iain West told the court some people will find the footage "distressing and confronting".
