Montpelier builder Simon Lewis describes how he got badly injured by police dogs during the Stokes Croft disturbances and points out there is a Bristol City Council petition to investigate the Police tactics during those operations – Part three of the extracts from Keith Allen’s banned new film about the assassination of Princess Diana Unlawful Killing. This week’s big talk at Colston Hall: In depth interview with San Fransisco architect Richard Gage from Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth.
On Bristol Community FM's Friday Drivetime yesterday evening we heard from Montpelier builder Simon Lewis who was attacked by three police dogs and hospitalised on the second night of the Easter 'disturbances'. This is the third programe I have focussed on those riots and the third time Avon & Somerset police press office have turned down my invitaton to appear.
This is a decision made not by officers but at Portishead HQ by Media Relations Manager Victoria Tag and her boss, Amanda Hirst, Head of Corporate Communications for Avon and Somerset Police who answer directly to Chief Constable Colin Port.
These decisions appear to contravene the publicly funded police's committment to dialogue with the community. Avon & Somerset's Force's Media and Public Relations Policy states as follows: 'the philosophy underpinning that policy is to be open, honest, fair and accountable with the media and, through the media, with the communities we serve.'
