The Met has released images of four more people it is searching for after a protest over the death of a man in east London.

The protest was organised outside Stoke Newington police station on 28 July following the death of Rashan Charles.

Police said that while the gathering was initially peaceful, it was used by some to commit disorder with fireworks and bottles hurled at officers.

A full inquest into Mr Charles' death will take place next year.

The 20-year-old was followed by police in Dalston on 22 July but became ill and died and after putting an object in his mouth.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is investigating the circumstances in which he died having been chased into a shop by police officers.
