The MPS wishes to reiterate its sincere regret about the death of Ian Tomlinson. Our thoughts remain with the family of Ian Tomlinson and those affected by his death.
It is only right that the circumstances of Ian Tomlinson’s death have been independently investigated. We have co-operated fully with the IPCC’s investigation so that the facts of what happened that day can be established. There will of course be an inquest where the facts will be heard publicly. This is important for the family of Ian Tomlinson as well as MPS officers and Londoners.
We now await the IPCC’s investigation report before being able to carefully consider appropriate misconduct proceedings.
