This account from an eyewitness of Ian Tomlinson's death at the police riot in the City of London yesterday actually says he was hit with a truncheon before collapsing.
See below, on the Kettle blog, for other eyewitness accounts.
Here is another eyewitness account. Ian was looking dazed, and was helped to his feet by a demonstrator at one stage. The police were looking shocked. In this account he was in the kettle.
Accounts in the media saying that he was just a worker on his way home are nonsense because nobody on those streets was allowed to move. If he was on the way home, he must have been corralled up.
Kettling has got to stop. Lois Austin is taking a case to the European Court of Human Rights.
