Rioters Clash With London Police After Alleged Death of 25-Year-Old Man in Police Custody (VIDEO)

East London – Police clash with rioters as marches erupted into utter chaos.

London rioters set various things on fire and threw bricks as they attacked the Forest Gate Police Station. Firefighters were guarded by police as they attempted to quell a fire that broke out after the justice for Edson protest in Newham spiraled out of control.

Vessel News’ Josh Caplan posted videos which show officers wearing helmets and standing shoulder-to-shoulder in an attempt to keep the crowd under control.

Express UK reports:

Members of the crowd had been screaming “no justice, no peace, no racist police”.

Edir Frederico Da Costa, known as Edson, died in hospital six days after he was detained in Newham on June 15.

His family allege that he was brutally beaten in custody, which the Met Police has categorically denied.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said a preliminary post-mortem, carried out on Thursday, indicated there were no spinal injuries caused by police.

Family campaigners were insisting that the violence was not coming from them and it had been set up as a peaceful march.
A Met spokeswoman previously said they are “aware of the protest”, adding: “An appropriate policing plan is in place.”
