Ian Tomlinson :Incuriouser and incuriouser: the IPCC investigation into the deception of the media following Ian Tomlinson's death

Post mortem misinformation

Did the police deliberately issue misleading and inaccurate information on the first post mortem which took place on 3 April 2009?
128. The first post-mortem did indeed find that Mr Tomlinson died of a heart attack. Injuries to Mr Tomlinson‟s thigh (a bruise) and calf (laceration) were found but not regarded as significant by Dr Patel.

While it is acceptable that the post mortem did not find those injuries to be significant, it is bizarre that they were not disclosed to the family.
