Sean Rigg inquest to start hearing evidence today.

The inquest into the death of a man who died after being arrested by police will start hearing evidence today.

Yesterday a jury was sworn in for the inquest into the death of forty year old Sean Rigg, who died after being taken into police custody in August 2008.

Sean, who had a long history of mental illness, was arrested shortly before his death for a public order offence and attacking a policeman.

He was taken to Brixton police station, where he became ill and was taken to hospital.

He was formally pronounced dead in hospital later that night. A preliminary post-mortem examination showed no obvious signs of any injury that could have caused his death.

His sister Marcia Rigg-Samuel is expected to be one of the first to give evidence.
