Discredited pathologist Dr Freddy Patel struck off
Friday 24 August 2012
The pathologist who conducted the first post-mortem tests on a man who died in 2009's G20 protests in London has been struck off the medical register.
Dr Freddy Patel wrongly said newspaper seller Ian Tomlinson died from heart problems.
A medical tribunal earlier concluded he acted with "deficient professional performance" over his examination.
Earlier this week, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service said Dr Patel's work was "deficient" and ruled that he is not fit to practise.
In total, 68 failings were identified by the service in Dr Patel's work on the case of Mr Tomlinson.
