Thousands of people rallied around bereaved families whose loved ones have died in custody as they marched to Downing Street demanding an urgent meeting with the Prime Minister.
The relatives of Chris Kaba, Oladeji Omishore, Matthew Leahy, Jack Susianta and Leon Patterson signed a letter addressed to Rishi Sunak which was delivered to Number 10 on Saturday.
Alongside Marcia Rigg, an organiser at the United Families & Friends Campaign (UFFC) whose brother Sean Rigg died in police custody in 2008, they are calling for changes to the judicial process following state-related deaths.
Protesters joining them on the march chanted “police are the murderers” and held signs reading “End Taser deaths now” and “Failed by the state” as they gathered on Parliament Street in central London.
