Third postmortem to be carried out on Ian Tomlinson | UK news | guardian.co.uk

A third postmortem examination is to be carried out tomorrow on the body of Ian Tomlinson, the newspaper seller who died shortly after a police officer hit him from behind during the G20 protests on 1 April.

Lawyers representing a Metropolitan police officer who is being questioned in connection with the incident have appointed a third pathologist and requested that the City of London coroner allow the test to be conducted. The officer has been interviewed under caution on suspicion of manslaughter.

The coroner, Paul Major, has agreed to the third examination. It will be carried out in the presence of a fourth pathologist, who will serve as an observer for the police.
