A group of G20 protestors claiming to have been the victims of overly aggressive police tactics are considering taking legal action against the Metropolitan police, reports suggest.
Legal representatives for a group of climate camp demonstrators have apparently told the Met they may launch a judicial review of the tactics used by officers last month to contain the protests in central London.
Tactics such as the controversial “kettling” could be subject to a review, experts have warned.
Demonstrators who staged the Bishopsgate climate camp on April 1st are said to want an explanation of how the Met handled the event.
Sky News reports solicitors from the law firm Bindmans have submitted a “pre-action” letter to the Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson on their behalf.
