Rashan was seen by officers swallowing something he was rushed to A&E and later died in hospital.

The planned protest began on Friday afternoon at 15:40 BST, but has continued into the night.

Pedestrians, motorcyclists and cyclists are being advised not to travel through the barricade. Traffic diversions are in place..

Rashan is believed to have fled a car that the Met Police were attempting to stop in Hackney, but as he tried to swallow something an officer ‘intervened’ and tried to stop the man from ‘harming himself’.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), which is investigating the events that led to the death of Charles, said in a statement: “We understand the concerns raised following Rashan’s death.

“We will independently examine the circumstances of this incident, we will follow the evidence, we will consider whether there is an indication there may have been misconduct or criminality, and we will seek to answer the questions that Rashan’s family and community of Hackney understandably have.”

The IPCC is understood to have reviewed CCTV footage from the shop, and the police body camera video, where Rashan is involved.

In a separate statement, they added: “The IPCC has obtained evidence which indicates an object was removed from his throat at the scene.”
