Vigil for police death man
Roger Sylvester's father leads the march through north London
People are holding a candlelit procession in north London for Roger Sylvester, who died earlier this month, seven days after being detained by police officers in Tottenham.
They are also taking part in a two-hour march, finishing at Tottenham police station.
Mr Sylvester, 30, collapsed after being detained under the Mental Health Act on 11 January, following a disturbance outside a block of flats, and died on Monday in intensive care.
A post-mortem examination took place on 21 January. The cause of death has not yet been established and further tests are to be carried out.
The inquest will open at St Pancras Coroner's Court on 26 January.
Assistant Chief Constable John Broughton of Essex police has been appointed to head the inquiry into the death.
The move came after the filing of an official complaint into the incident by the victim's family.
The investigation had been put in the hands of a superintendent in Essex police, but the Police Complaints Authority said it had been decided to appoint an assistant chief constable in view of the seriousness of the case.
