Hundreds of protesters marched in Burnley last Saturday seeking answers to questions about the death of Nadeem Khan in police custody.

A week ago the 28-year old was arrested following a “violent struggle” with police.

He later fell ill at Burnley police station and was taken to hospital where he died.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission has launched an investigation.

His family, including his mother Brenda who is suffering from cancer and who signed herself out of hospital, joined the march.

Organiser Shiraz Khan, Nadeem Khan’s cousin, said, “This is just the start. We won’t let this be brushed under the carpet. We won’t rest until we have justice.”
