A man has died after he was restrained by police officers at a London home, the Met Police have confirmed.

An investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has been launched following the man death, which occurred at a London hospital after he was rushed their in a critical condition last Thursday (March 18).

"We are all truly saddened by this development, and my thoughts and those of my officers remain with the man’s family," Detective Chief Superintendent Treena Fleming, who is officially in charge of policing for Enfield and Haringey, said.

"We are fully co-operating with the Independent Office for Police Conduct who are investigating the events of that evening.

"I would again ask that people do not speculate until this investigation has had as much time as it needs to establish what happened," she added.

The deceased man had been restrained by police officers on March 18 after they attended reports of a "loud disturbance including threats of violence at a residential address" on Waldegrave Road in Haringey around 7.35pm.

A statement put out by police said they found a 44-year-old man who was "agitated" and in a "state of distress".

"The man was restrained by officers and the London Ambulance Service was called," it read.

"Prior to their arrival, the man’s medical condition worsened. He was treated at the scene, first by officers and then by paramedics.

"He was transported to a north London hospital in critical condition. Despite the best efforts of hospital staff, he died the following day," the Met Police statement continued.

The news comes on the back of widespread criticism of the Met Police's actions at a recent vigil for Sarah Everard at Clapham Common, where several women peacefully demonstrating were forcibly detained by police officers.
