Sir Paul Stephenson, the Scotland Yard chief, has admitted to having “concerns” over damning video footage which shows Ian Tomlinson being shoved to the ground by a police officer minutes before he died at the London G20 protests.

In a statement released by the Metropolitan Police, Sir Paul said: “My thoughts are with Mr Tomlinson’s family at this time. The images that have now been released raise obvious concerns and it is absolutely right and proper that there is a full investigation into this matter, which the Met will fully support.”

The Liberal Democrats have called for a criminal inquiry to be held into the death.

The Liberal Democrats have called for a criminal inquiry to be held into the death.

“If it identifies the need for a criminal investigation then that also needs to be pursued,” she said.

Chris Grayling, shadow home secretary, said: “These latest revelations are extremely alarming and leave big questions to be answered by the police. It’s right that there should be an independent investigation.”

Mr Tomlinson, 47, collapsed and died from a heart attack near the Bank of England after being caught up amid demonstrations on his way home last Wednesday.
