Relatives of newspaper seller Ian Tomlinson broke down in court as film footage of his final hours of life was shown.

The 47-year-old’s widow Julia and stepson Paul King cried as a film clip was played of a medical student trying to save Mr Tomlinson as he lay on the pavement with his eyes closed.

He collapsed minutes after being hit with a police baton and shoved to the ground by Pc Simon Harwood during the G20 protests in the City of London in April 2009.

There are four files, containing CCTV, TV camera and mobile phone footage of the G20 demonstrations and the moments leading to Mr Tomlinson’s death. PC Simon Harwood Harwood, from Surrey, denies manslaughter on the grounds that he used reasonable force.

The trial continues.
