Police clashed with protesters at a violent demonstration in Dalston, northeast London, over the death of a Rashan Charles late on Friday, July 28 and into the early hours of Saturday. Tempers boiled over earlier in the day as protesters threw bottles at police officers following a protest over the death of Rashan, a 20-year-old man who died following a scuffle with police on July 23. Police said that Charles died after swallowing an object after being chased and restrained by a officer in a Dalston shop. Protesters set up barricades and lit bonfires later into the evening as police in riot gear moved to clear Kingsland Road.
