An inquest jury at Inner London South Coroner's Court found that officers used "unsuitable" force after arresting Sean Rigg for attacking passers-by and police officers in Balham, south London. The jury found that police restrained Mr Rigg in the "prone position" for eight minutes while he was being arrested, a length of time that "more than minimally" contributed to his death. Sean's sister, Marcia Rigg-Samuel, said the family's next step would be to have meetings with the Independent Police Complaints Commission and police, claiming the verdict was just the start of their "quest for justice".
