Trial over Ian Tomlinson death opens
Monday 18 June 2012
The trial of a policeman accused of the manslaughter of a newspaper vendor as he walked home from work during G20 protests in London starts today.
Ian Tomlinson, 47, was allegedly shoved as he walked past a group of police officers on his way to a hostel in London on 1 April 2009. He was helped to his feet but collapsed a few minutes later and died.
Mr Tomlinson's family are expected to attend the opening day of the trial of Simon Harwood at Southwark Crown Court in London. PC Harwood, 44, a father of two children, from Carshalton in Surrey, has denied the charge.
