Footage of police tasering a frail 95-year-old grandmother in an aged care facility has been described as “confronting” as outrage over the incident grows.

Clare Nowland is receiving end-of-life care in Cooma Hospital, surrounded by her family, after she was injured when tasered on Wednesday morning.
