Sheku Bayoh died after being restrained by up to seven police officers in 2015 in Kirkcaldy. A public inquiry is now underway to look at the circumstances leading up to Sheku's death, as well as the post-incident management and the investigation into his death, and whether race played a part in what happened.

A vigil will be held outside Capital House, Festival Square, Lothian Road, Edinburgh, EH3 9SU from 8:30am on Monday 28 August, before the official hearing resumes at 10:00am.

If you plan to attend the hearing after the vigil, please remember to contact the inquiry to do so. Your attendance at both would be much appreciated by the family.
