Outcome  Financial commitments The G-20 leaders – despite apparent splits between the U.K. and the U.S., who wanted a large financial stimulus, and France and Germany, who wanted stricter financial regulation – reached an agreement which, in principle, provides US$1.1 trillion to various programs designed to improve international finance, credit, trade, and overall economic stability and recovery. Programs include: US$500 billion for the IMF to aid struggling economies, US$250 billion to boost world trade, US$250 billion for a new IMF overdraft facility, US$100 billion to assist international development banks in lending to poor countries.
Protests Protesters outside the Bank of England on 1 April 2009 Main article: 2009 G-20 London summit protests The summit became the focus of protests from a number of disparate groups over various long standing and topical issues. These ranged from disquiet over economic policy, anger at the banking system and bankers remuneration and bonuses, the continued war on terror and concerns over climate change.

Death of Ian Tomlinson Ian Tomlinson shortly before being pushed to the ground Main article: Death of Ian Tomlinson Ian Tomlinson, a newsagent in the City of London, died within a police cordon of the G-20 Meltdown protest near the Bank of England. Initially the City of London Police denied that any incident with the police had occurred. However video, photographic and eyewitness evidence was published in the media, and the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) confirmed that Tomlinson had been pushed back by police officers minutes before he collapsed and died of a heart attack. Further allegations that Tomlinson had been hit with a baton were supported when additional video footage became public. The IPCC then later ordered a second post mortem and an independent criminal inquiry, with the second post mortem finding that although "there is evidence of coronary atherosclerosis" it was "unlikely to have contributed to the cause of death" and that "the cause of death was abdominal haemorrhage".
