Ian Tomlinson pathologist Dr Freddy Patel struck off

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 Ian Tomlinson died from heart problems.

A medical tribunal earlier concluded he acted with "deficient professional performance" over his examination.

June Kelly reports.
