Cass report: police killed Blair Peach then covered it up

A police officer was probably responsible for the death of anti-racism activist Blair Peach but the killing was covered up, a Scotland Yard report revealed today - 31 years after the notorious incident.

Police officers conspired to conceal the circumstances surrounding the death of the 33-year-old New Zealand teacher during a demonstration against the National Front in Southall west London in 1979.

Mr Peach was struck on the head in the protest and members of the Metropolitan police riot squad, the Special Patrol Group, were suspected of dealing the fatal blow.
