"When I was in the middle of the crowd, two people came over to me and said, 'There are people over there who we believe are policemen and who have been encouraging the crowd to throw things at the police'". But when the crowd became suspicious of the men and accused them of being police officers, the pair approached the police line and passed through after showing some form of identification.
The Met have flatly denied the accusations, and the IPCC say that of the 256 complaints they've received about G20 policing, none relate to agents provocateurs.
