The funeral of a man who died following contact with police in Fife, Scotland, is set to take place this Sunday.

Sheku Bayoh died on 3 May after he lost consciousness after being restrained by police.

His funeral is set to take place in Kirkcaldy, Fife, and a protest march is being organised in the town at noon by his family and supporters to demand justice.

Pathologists have been unable to establish the cause of Sheku’s death. Nine police officers involved in the incident which led to his death have refused to speak to independent investigators.

See Justice For Sheku Ahmed Tejan Bayoh on Facebook for more details about the march when they are announced
