On a dark and cold winter evening protesters campaigning for justice for the two men killed in Thames Valley Police’s custody held a peaceful vigil outside Slough police station in a town blighted for many years by police brutality, false and malicious arrests and police cover-ups.
On the first anniversary of the death, in Thames Valley Police custody, of 57 year old Philmore Mills, father of 4 daughters, Philmore’s family and the family of 39 year old Habib Ullah came together to hold a peaceful candle-lit vigil outside the main police station in Windsor Road, Slough.
Philmore Mills died in police handcuffs on the floor of ward 9 at the local NHS acute hospital Wexham Park. He was an ill inpatient needing an oxygen mask. He was not wanted by the police for anything.
