Several hundred people marched through the centre of Kirkcaldy today in the campaign for justice for Sheku Bayoh.

Four months after his death, supporters and family members gathered for a rally at the Town House.

They were joined on the platform by two other Fife families seeking to find out what happened to their loved ones - Allan Bryant Jnr who went missing almost two years ago, and Colin Marr, who died from a single stab wound eight years ago.

The Bayoh family marched just 24 hours before they were due to meet with Sir Stephen House, the outgoing Chief Constable of Police Scotland.

The controversial death of the 31-year old, while in police custody is the subject of an investigation led by the Police Investigations and Review Commission (PIRC).

Among the speakers was Ade Johnson, his brother-law who said: “We are here to try to create more awareness of the situation we are in, in terms of Sheku’s death.

“We are finding the processes and procedures very, very challenging. It is very tough on families to go through something like this.”

He said he welcomed the meeting with the Chief Constable,
