After being successfully sued by many activists for wrongful arrest after storming the convergence space of the G20 protests in 2009, the Met may now be facing more claims from those kettled at the Climate Camp in Bishopsgate on the same day.

The High Court ruled that police tactics towards the peaceful protest amounted to 'false imprisonment' last Thursday (14th), but the cops are trying to avoid shelling out the compensation, and vindicate themselves, by appealing the decision. If you were innocently pitching your tent in London's financial district that fateful April afternoon only to be detained for hours on end, watch this space.
