The process of identifying the police witnesses (and possible accomplices) to the deadly assault on Ian Tomlinson in Royal Exchange Passage close to Cornhill is bearing fruit.
C1 is officer 204. I have a sequence of him rushing and attacking an innocent photographer moments before the attack on Ian Tomlinson. The officer then turned for me – but noticed I was taking loads of photos of him…
I will look through the rest of my photos tonight and update. Great work.
From the picture Colin has linked to above, and by looking through the rest of his photos from the G20 protests (an important body of testimonial work), I believe we can more clearly get a picture of what the officer I labelled below as ‘C1’, and whom Colin has IDed as officer 204 of the City of Londson Police, looks like.
Here’s a composite based on two extracts from the Channel 4 News ‘broken camera’ footage and two of Colin’s pictures:
If anyone can put a name to the face and/or number, or can bear witness to his activities on the day, previously or since, then please do get in touch. Please also spread this information.
If the police cannot police themselves, then we must do it. If we don’t, then next time it could be us lying lifeless in the gutter.
Colin has a selection of pictures featuring CoL cop 204 at G20 on his TwoThumbsFresh Flickr:
