Sean Rigg dies in a caged area of Brixton Police Station in August 2008 and the Independent Police Complaint Commission (IPCC) is called in to investigate. Sean’s family are shocked at the death and this soon turns to anger when the IPCC makes error after error in its inquiry – raising the question as to whether it is incompetence or collusion. Sean’s family begin a four- year struggle to investigate the death themselves and in the process ask ‘Who Polices The Police?’
