2009 London G20 Summit

1 April 2009 saw the G20 summit land in London. Tens of thousands protested economic and environmental issues as the first bite of the global banking crisis appeared in the UK.

By the end of the first day one man, newspaper seller Ian Tomlinson, was dead after being struck down by a riot police officer. Footage shot by this journalist went on to expose the use of plain clothes police officers deployed inside the demonstration.

ReportDigital has uploaded nine video rushes from the two days of protest, with some previously unpublished footage.
