Guardian video shows attack on Ian Tomlinson

Several papers are running with the story, but it was the Guardian who obtained footage of Ian Tomlinson’s clash with police.

Moments before his fatal heart attack, the G20 protestor appears to be in the vicinity of a riot officer’s lunge.

The Guardian has compiled a dossier on the incident which it handed to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) last night.

The full story makes the paper’s front page and is supported with spreads given over to video analysis and eyewitness accounts, plus a lengthy comment piece by Duncan Campbell.

On its website the Guardian reports how the piece has sparked outrage online and calls for a criminal inquiry.
