Officer involved in death of 20-year-old in east London has been put on restricted duties, against advice of police watchdog
The Metropolitan police have been criticised by the family of Rashan Charles for ignoring the advice of the police watchdog and refusing to suspend the officer involved in his death.
Charles, 20, died in July in east London after a police officer wrestled him to the floor of a shop. His death sparked protests and violent clashes with police, with protesters throwing fireworks and bottles. The family, alongside the local MP Diane Abbott, appealed for calm and peaceful protest.
