On Saturday 27 October, over 500 people gathered to march from Trafalgar Square to Downing Street for the annual United Families and Friends Campaign remembrance procession for those that have died in state custody.

The march made its way slowly down Whitehall, led by the sons, daughters, grandchildren, nieces and nephews of those  that have died. A symbolic coffin on which was written all the names of the deceased was carried.

The march was joined this year by new families as well as those veterans that have marched each of the last fourteen years that the commemorative march has been held. Banners, placards and t-shirts recalled  Mikey Powell, Roger Sylvester, Azelle Rodney Ricky Bishop, Sean Rigg, Jimmy Mubenga, Sarah Campbell, Christopher Alder, Anthony Grainger, Olaseni Lewis, Billy Spiller, Kingsley Burrell, Demetre Fraser, Philmore Mills, Paul Coker, Mark Duggan and Mark Nunes.
