The family of Rashan Charles must wait almost a year for a full inquest into the death of the man who died after being chased by police in east London.
Rashan Charles, 20, died on July 22 having earlier been apprehended by Metropolitan Police officers after running into a shop in Dalston.
An inquest into Mr Charles’ death – which sparked riots on the streets of the capital – was opened today but authorities are waiting for test results before revealing a cause of death, his family were told.
CCTV appeared to show an officer struggling with Mr Charles on the shop floor, following an attempted vehicle stop moments before.
