Family of man who died after arrest "devastated"

The family of a man who died after an arrest in Leeds say he was a doting father.

West Yorkshire Police were making a pre-planned arrest at a house in Wortley last night when he collapsed. He died later in hospital.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission are investigating.

"As a family we are devastated by the death of Nazim Din. He was a family man, a loving husband and a doting father of five children who he leaves behind. Nazim had much to live for..."

The family then went on to say

"...He had done nothing wrong. He was a law-abiding and peaceful man. We urge the police to fully co-operate with those investigating Nazim’s death so that the facts can be brought to light as quickly as possible. We have suffered a terrible loss and do not want to struggle for answers whilst grieving. That is the least the police and the press can do for us at this time."
