The manslaughter trial of a police officer accused of killing Ian Tomlinson has heard a witness describe Tomlinson as “not posing any threat to the officers”.
The witness added, “I had the impression that the officer was making an example of him.”
Ian Tomlinson died shortly after PC Simon Harwood struck him with a baton and shoved him to the ground during G20 protests on 1 April 2009.
The evidence came from a statement from American businessman Christopher La Jaunie, who filmed events on his mobile phone.
Giuseppe Di-Cecio, who worked nearby, also said Tomlinson did not look like a threat to the police.
PC Harwood denies the charges. The trial continues.
