IPCC : 'Questions remain' after Ian Tomlinson death

A police officer who hit Ian Tomlinson with a baton and pushed him to the ground at the G20 protests has been found not guilty of manslaughter.

PC Simon Harwood, 45, of south London, denied the manslaughter, in April 2009, of Mr Tomlinson, 47, on the grounds that he used reasonable force.

Deborah Glass, deputy chairwoman of the Independent Police Complaints Commission, said "significant questions" remained over PC Harwood's actions on 1 April 2009.

She said whether or not those actions were reasonable would be tested at a misconduct hearing to be held in public in September.
