From British daily The Morning Star:

Mr Tomlinson, who was seen being struck by police and pushed to the floor on April 1 in the City of London, was first thought to have died from a heart attack after an initial post-mortem.
But the second post-mortem examination contradicted these findings, Mr Tomlinson’s family solicitor said on Friday.
The statement from the City of London Coroner’s Court overturns the initial assessment that Mr Tomlinson died of natural causes.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), which is investigating Mr Tomlinson’s death, said a police officer who is suspended has now been questioned on suspicion of manslaughter following this second post-mortem.
Authorities were warned three months before the death of Ian Tomlinson that someone would be killed if a wave of savage attacks by police on demonstrators was allowed to continue, the Morning Star can reveal: here.
