Police restraint death: family looking to IOPC for urgent answers

Kevin Clarke


The family of 35-year-old, Kevin Clarke, who died earlier this month after being restrained by London Metropolitan Police officers, has issued the following statement through their solicitor, Cyrilia Davies Knight of Hudgell Solicitors:

“On Friday 9 March 2018, our family was informed that our beloved son, brother and cousin, Kevin Andre Clarke was dead.

“Kevin was well-known and loved in our community and we will truly miss him. He was a father figure and a role model to so many, even when he was going through his difficult times. He was also a gifted footballer, who would coach young people and dreamt about pursuing this; unfortunately his dream was cut short.

“We do not know exactly what happened or the circumstances which led to Kevin’s untimely death. We are left with so many questions and hope that the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) will swiftly complete their investigations into Kevin’s death and that those officers involved will offer their full cooperation.”

“Finally, we ask that you keep us in your prayers, we do appreciate all the love and support we have been shown during this difficult time.”

Cyrilia Davies Knight added: “I’ll be working closely with the family, the coroner and the IOPC to ensure that an honest, open and swift investigation takes place into the circumstances surrounding Kevin’s tragic death.”
