The following article is reproduced from various locations on the web, where it carries a notice requesting that people republish it as widely as possible. It was originally published on www.wessexblog.com but has subsequently been removed. I am currently attempting to contact the author to confirm it is okay to reproduce the article here.
This is an account of what I witnessed the night Ian Tomlinson died on the G20 demonstrations, and my account of the investigation since then. I believe it sheds some light on; The initial response of the police to Mr Tomlinson when he was dying; The nature of the symptoms Mr Tomlinson displayed; An insider's view of the IPCC investigation and some of its flaws.
