Friends, family and supporters remember Darren Cumberbatch
Over 100 people came to the ruins of Coventry Cathedral yesterday to remember a friend, a brother and son loved by so many, who died 10 days after being beaten and tasered by Warwickshire police at a hostel in Nuneaton.
The vigil was organised by the Justice4Daz campaign, which is calling for the immediate suspension of the officers involved, that the use of tasers by the force will be halted and that all officers should wear body cameras from now on.
The Reverend Desmond Jaddoo and a representative of the bishop of Coventry addressed the crowd, as well as Darren’s sister and mother. Others shared memories of Darren and vowed to continue the fight to learn the truth about the events of the night of 10th July and gain some sort of justice for Darren.
Further protests and fund raising events are planned.
