Blair Peach was killed by police at 1979 protest: police report released after 30 years says Blair Peach was most likely killed by an elite riot squad officer.

Friends of Peach would gather outside Scotland Yard today, and read out the names of the six suspected officers.

The Met has resisted publishing any material relating to the death of Peach for almost 30 years.

That decision was reversed last year after an investigation by the Guardian into the parallels between events surrounding Peach's death in April 1979 and the death of Ian Tomlinson, a 47-year-old newspaper vendor who died during last year's G20 protests in London.
