Sean Rigg’s sister: ‘It was blatantly obvious Sean had mental health problems’


Five police officers have been cleared of misconduct by a disciplinary panel investigating their involvement in the death of Sean Rigg, who suffered from schizophrenia.

He died 11 years ago after being restrained by Metropolitan Police officers. An earlier inquest found that the officers had used an amount of force which was deemed “unsuitable”.

Despite today’s decision, members of Sean Rigg’s family have vowed to continue their fight for justice.

We spoke to Sean Rigg’s sister, Marcia, and started by asking her if she accepted the outcome of the Metropolitan Police’s misconduct panel.
