People have gathered outside the Metropolitan Police headquarters for a protest against racism and police violence.
It came after a Met police shot and killed Chris Kaba, a black man of 24 years old, on September 5 while he was unarmed.
Politicians and members of Mr. Kaba’s family, who have accused the force of prejudice, joined the protestors.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct is looking into the incident and will determine if race played a role.
At the event, Jeremy Corbyn, a former leader of the Labour Party, and Bell Ribeiro-Addy, the MP for Streatham, both gave speeches.
Videos posted from Saturday’s protests show a crowd of people on London’s embankment chanting: “What do we want? Justice.”
The protest in central London was one of many taking place in the UK, including in Brighton, Oxford, Southampton, Coventry, Leamington Spa, Manchester, Taunton, Hassockfield, and Cardiff, as part of a National Day of Action organised by the Justice for Chris Kaba campaign.
Mr Kaba died after a single shot by a firearms officer at the Met, who has since been suspended from duty.
He had been involved in a police pursuit after the car he was driving was flagged on an automatic camera system indicating it had been involved in an offence.
Mr Kaba’s family have accused the Met of racism.
