Pathologist Freddy Patel "not fit to practise" - Tomlinson family response

The pathologist who conducted the first post-mortem tests on Ian Tomlinson and concluded he had died of heart problems has been found "not fit to practise" by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service today.

Julia Tomlinson responded today saying "The incompetence and dishonesty of Freddy Patel helped PC Harwood and gave us an uphill battle for justice from the start. He mislead everyone saying that Ian had died of a heart attack when in fact he had died of internal bleeding. It's good that people can see some of the things we have been up against. Patel has a lot to answer for and I would like to know why with all the good pathologists there are he was selected to do the first post mortem"
