A police officer has been interviewed under caution for manslaughter after a new post-mortem overturned the cause of Ian Tomlinson's death.
Now a fresh examination has found he died of abdominal haemorrhage, not a heart attack, as originally thought. Lawyers for the family said the new post-mortem raised the likelihood of a manslaughter charge.
The new postmortem showed that Tomlinson died from an abdominal haemorrhage. The cause of Tomlinson's injury has not been established, but investigators will now have to decide whether alleged police assaults on the 47-year-old newspaper vendor contributed to his death.

Well that's very interesting, I feel for his family - I don't think this one is going to be shoved under the carpet thank god...
The police are going to be as clear as glass about this one I think, they might even throw this one copper to the wolves... I really hope so.

There was an initial post mortem , by a Dr Freddy Patel. Can a heart attack cause an abdominal haemorrhage , or would the haemorrhage need to come first , I'd have thought the latter ? Anyway, I hope this doctor Patel's diagnosis equally comes under scrutiny , especially considering his checkered past .
