A policeman who hit a newspaper seller and pushed him to the ground moments before he died during the G20 protests could face criminal charges.

There are growing calls for a criminal investigation after a video emerged today of the officer shoving Ian Tomlinson and apparently hitting him with a baton.

The 47-year-old stood up and walked away but moments later collapsed and died on the street. A post-mortem showed he suffered a catastrophic heart attack.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is already investigating the death but today there was mounting pressure for a full criminal inquiry.

Mr Tomlinson’s family said the video footage proved he had clashed with police despite not being involved in the protest and demanded an explanation.

Son Paul King, 26, said: ‘Ian clearly had his arms in his pockets and back towards the police. There is no need for them to step in towards him.
