All charges of gross misconduct against officers involved in the death of Sean Rigg have been dismissed. Sean died following police contact in Brixton in 2008.

His sister, Marcia Rigg, spoke to ITV London and asks 'Where is the justice?'.

Marcia Rigg and INQUEST caseworker, Victoria McNally also spoke to Channel 4 News.

INQUEST Director, Deborah Coles, was quoted in the Guardian and The Voice,: 

"This shameful outcome points to the impunity of the police, and a process which frustrates the prevention of abuse of power and ill treatment. The delays in the process were the result of failings of the IPCC, and of the police to cooperate with the investigation. The Rigg family are the only people who come out of this process with any credibility”
