Following the shocking Guardian footage of the events leading up to Iain Tomlinson's death, a spokesperson for Boris Johnson has released the following statement:
"It is very regrettable that a man has died and the Mayor extends his condolences to Ian Tomlinson's family. The video footage which has come to light is clearly disturbing and the Mayor is taking this matter very seriously. Kit Malthouse, the Deputy Chair of the MPA, is meeting the IPCC tomorrow to urge them to ensure a speedy and thorough inquiry."
Policing of the G20 demonstrations was a joint operation between the Met and the City of London police.
Questions now need to be asked about the statement put out by the Met shortly after Tomlinson's death.
-Update- Lib Dem member of MPA says public trust in the police could "take years to recover"
