The Metropolitan Police has pleaded not guilty to breaching health and safety legislation over the death of Jean Charles de Menezes in July 2005.
Mr Menezes was shot seven times after he was mistaken for a suicide bomber.

The plea was heard at the City of Westminster Magistrates Court. The case has been brought by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

The Crown Prosecution Service said in July there was insufficient evidence to charge individual officers.

The Met's solicitor advocate Mark Scroggins indicated a plea of not guilty to one offence under Sections 3 and 33 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

The charges allege the force breached its duty to non-employees over the shooting of the innocent Brazilian at Stockwell Tube station.

The court case against the force was adjourned last month as police asked for more time to prepare. Following a hearing at the London magistrates court, it was given five more weeks to consider the evidence against it.

The case is now likely to be sent to the Old Bailey for a trial some time next year.
