Sheku Bayoh's Family Set To Meet First Minister

Relatives of a man who died in police custody earlier this year are set to meet First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Sheku Bayoh, 31, died after being detained by officers called to an incident in Kirkcaldy, Fife, on May 3.

The father-of-two's death is being investigated by the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (Pirc).

His family have been demanding answers over police conduct and Mr Bayoh's cause of death.

They have previously held talks with officials including Lord Advocate Frank Mulholland QC and Police Scotland chief constable Sir Stephen House.

Mr Mulholland received an interim report into the circumstances surrounding the death from the Pirc in August.

Mr Bayoh's relatives are now set to meet Ms Sturgeon and Justice Secretary Michael Matheson at the First Minister's official residence in Edinburgh.

Last month, relatives of the trainee gas engineer watched the CCTV and phone footage of the last moments of his life during a meeting at the Lord Advocate's office.

They also took their case to the Scottish Parliament where a cross-party meeting had been arranged.
