The following article is reproduced from various locations on the web, where it carries a notice requesting that people republish it as widely as possible. It was originally published on www.wessexblog.com but has subsequently been removed. We are currently attempting to contact the author to confirm it is okay to reproduce the article here.
Update: We've now spoken to Peter via email and he's asked us to take the piece down, as he did himself, on the request of Ian Tomlinson's family's legal team. The article contained an eye-witness account of the events immediately prior to Ian's death and the subsequent IPCC investigation, and some of the information it contained may be relevant in future legal proceedings. We hope to republish the article, perhaps with further updates, at a future date.
