Police watchdog says Mohamud Hassan may have been injured during disturbance at home

The police watchdog investigating the arrest of a man who died suddenly after being released from custody, have indicated he could have suffered injuries during a large disturbance at his home the night before his death.

Lawyers have previously demanded that the Independent Office for Police Conduct, which is investigating the contact South Wales police had with Mohamud Hassan, during his arrest and time in custody on the evening of 8 January, share evidence with his grieving family.

On Tuesday the IOPC said the investigation was making good progress and that they were in a position to share further information with the public. More than 30,000 people have signed a petition calling on the watchdog to release documents and CCTV footage detailing the contact between officers and the 24-year-old.
