Ian Tomlinson: final decision

The CPS has decided to prosecute PC Simon Harwood for the manslaughter of Ian Tomlinson. A summons charging PC Harwood has been obtained from the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court and he will appear before that court on 20 June.

This is the policeman defended by his own senior officers, who found nothing untoward in his conduct. A jury will now have the opportunity of making up its own mind.
