Ian Tomlinson

In the noise and bustle of the City it is easy to miss this: the location where Ian Tomlinson died during the G20 demonstrations last April.

This poignant little scene is in Cornhill.

“Ian Tomlinson was attempting to find a route home from work through the protests when he was struck by police near the Bank of England. Video footage revealed that he had his hands in his pockets and was walking away from lines of police”.

The Crown Prosecution Service has said that the case remains under review and a decision on whether to prosecute for manslaughter would not be taken for a few months.
