Ian Tomlinson was violently shoved by a police officer during the G20 in London protest on April 2009.
The footage was taken by a business man Christopher La Jaunie with his own compact digital camera. If it was not for this video, Tomlinson’s death would have been swept under the rug. The family would not have known that Ian Tomlinson was stuck by a baton and shoved by a police officer, Simon Harwood.
It was only after the release of this video when Tomlinson’s death was investigated as a criminal inquiry.
