A POLICEMAN caught on camera hitting newspaper seller Ian Tomlinson and shoving him to the ground during G20 protests was suspended last night.
The officer came forward to officials probing the death of the 47-year-old from an apparent heart attack during demonstrations near the Bank of England.
An amateur cameraman caught the policeman’s actions on camera as thousands of protesters converged in the City.
A spokeswoman said: “The IPCC called for the officer to be suspended. The Metropolitan Police has informed us the officer has been suspended with immediate effect.”
