PostSubject: Police watchdog to quiz G20 officer   Thu Apr 09, 2009 1:49 am

An officer thought to have pushed a man who died during the G20 protests is to be interviewed by police watchdogs.

Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said the officer, who
appeared to hit Ian Tomlinson with his baton and push him to the
ground, has identified himself to investigators.

Mr Tomlinson, a 47-year-old newspaper seller, later collapsed and died.

The officer has been suspended and will be interviewed by IPCC investigators "as soon as possible".

Commissioner and deputy chairman Deborah Glass said: "We are pleased
that we now have what appears to be valuable information relating to
this incident.

"Several police officers,
including the officer himself, have come forward. It is our intention
to interview this officer as soon as possible."

Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Earlier today a Metropolitan Police
Service officer identified himself to his team leader as being
potentially involved in the incident shown on the video footage.

total of four MPS officers, inclusive of this officer, have now come
forward with potentially relevant information in relation to the
investigation into the death of Mr Tomlinson."

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson said the images "raise obvious concerns" and should be investigated fully.

watching the footage, Mr Tomlinson's son, Paul King, 26, said his
father left work selling the Evening Standard at Monument Station at
about 7pm. He was trying to make his way home but police at a number of
barricades were not allowing people through.
