Angry protest erupts in East London over Rashan Charles death

Street protest

ALL white people are racist. "White middle class, white working class, white men, white women, white gays, white children".

A third tweet saw him post a picture directed at "these rioters in Dalston" which contained the message: "You're doing wonderful sweetie".

The Pembroke College student then added: "They can all geddit".

The family of Rashan Charles, who died in police custody week ago, has urged calm at a fresh protest in east London.

He followed it with "I hope that all the white middle-class gentrified get rushed in ends tbh cba, you lot need to go back to Solihurst or Exeter or whatever".

"He was taken to hospital by the London Ambulance Service where, sadly, he died later that morning".

Scotland Yard said "a number of items including bottles" were thrown at officers attending a "planned protest" near Middleton Road at 3.40pm on Friday.

Britain's Independent Police Complaints Commission has said it will investigate "thoroughly and rigorously" the incidents that led to Charles' death.

Officers on horses and others in riot vans were deployed as the police tried to contain the disorder and break up groups of protesters.

The protest started mid-afternoon but by early evening, it had turned violent, with attempts being made to block roads and bottles being thrown at police.

Stafford Scott, who stood next to Mr Charles and spoke on behalf of the family, directly addressed the young people who protested the night before, and said that they understand their anger and frustration.

"All police officers are fully aware that they will be asked to account for their actions - officers are not exempt from the law and we would not wish to be".

One police officer sustained an injury to his eye during the protests and a member of the public was pushed his bicycle. An officer was injured and a 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of causing bodily harm.

Protesters had gathered in Kingsland Road, Hackney, after a non-violent vigil during the day, holding Black Lives Matter placards, and banners asking for answers from the IPCC investigation into the local lad's death.

The violence appeared to have been dispersed shortly after 11pm but shattered glass littered the streets of Dalston and a helicopter continued to circle above.

His death is also being investigated by the IPCC, which has revealed an early pathology report shows he had "a number of packages in his throat" when he died.
