G20 report: Has HMIC forgotten about Ian?

The family of Ian Tomlinson, who died at the G20, have issued a response to the HMIC report on G20 policing that was released today.

Julia Tomlinson, Ian's widow said:

"It's important that the police look at their mistakes after the G20, but we wonder why this report only talks about policing of protesters?

Has HMIC forgotten about Ian, who lost his life at the G20 and was simply a passer-by? Policing at protests affects everyone in the area and we are disappointed that neither this report nor any of the other reports about G20 policing so far have addressed this."
