28 April 2011

Today, the Coroner at the inquest into the death of Ian Tomlinson will sum up the case in front of a jury.

The jury will be told there is no more evidence to be heard and then given a summary of all the evidence about the police officer Simon Harwood and the medical evidence.

The Coroner will then give the jury directions on the law and explain to them the verdicts that have been left to them to return - the jury will then be sent out to consider.

Estimate of when the verdict will be returned

It is not possible to give a precise time for when the verdict will be returned as it depends on the length of the summing up and how long the jury take to deliberate.

However, there is a chance it could be delivered as early as this afternoon and if not it may come on the next day the court sits, on Tuesday 3rd of May or shortly after.
