9uth december 2010 students protest as parliament votes on fees

The trial of three police officers Andrew Ott, Calvin Lindsay and Thomas Barnes charged with offences relating to the 9th December 2010 student protests has been ongoing since last Tuesday at Southwark Crown Court.

PC Ott is accused of hitting student protester William Horner with his shield, and all three are charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

They deny the charges. (for more detail see  Simon Israel’s report for Channel 4 news).

At the heart of the case is an audio recording of the incident in question – taken from the recording device which PC Ott was wearing throughout the day.

Today the IPCC made that audio recording available.
