Ian Tomlinson Apology

August 5, 2013 by  

Ian Tomlinson Apology, Ian Tomlinson’s family have said Scotland’s Yard public apology for his death is “as close as we are going to get to justice”.

Police apologised for the death at the G20 protests in 2009 as they confirmed an out-of-court settlement has been reached with Mr Tomlinson’s relatives.

The 47-year-old was hit with a baton and shoved by Pc Simon Harwood during the demonstrations in the City of London and later collapsed and died.

Mr Harwood was found not guilty of manslaughter last year but was later thrown out of the police for gross misconduct after disciplinary proceedings.

In its statement, Scotland Yard paid tribute to Mr Tomlinson’s widow Julia and family for enduring the pain of his death “with dignity”.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Maxine de Brunner said: “I take full responsibility for the actions of Simon Harwood on 1 April 2009.
