Tomlinson relatives weep at footage of his final hours

Relatives of newspaper vendor Ian Tomlinson wept as footage of his final hours was shown at the trial of the police officer accused of killing him.

PC Simon Harwood, 44, of south London, denies the 2009 manslaughter of Mr Tomlinson, 47, during the G20 protests.

Southwark Crown Court saw a clip of PC Harwood adopting a "strike" position with his baton behind Mr Tomlinson.

Mr Tomlinson's widow and stepson cried as they saw footage of a student trying to help him after he later collapsed.

Matt Prodger reports.
