ITV News Central's Rajiv Popat speaks exclusively to Chad's brother, Jerome Allford

The family of a man from Derbyshire who died after he became unwell as he was being detained by police, say they are desperate to know what happened to him.

Chad Allford, who is 23-years-old, died a week ago after being detained by police officers at his home in Alfreton.

Officers arrived at around 5.00pm on Wednesday 27th October to a property on More Wood Drive where Mr Allford lived with his partner.

It's believed the officers visited in relation to suspected drug offences.

According to Derbyshire Police, as Mr Alford was being detained he became seriously unwell. An ambulance was called and CPR was carried out but he later died in hospital.

Derbyshire Police has now referred itself for investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct and says it won't be making further comments.

Hundreds of people attended a vigil the day after Chad's death, lining the road outside his home with flowers and balloons.

The IOPC is now assessing the interactions police had with Mr Allford, any use of force during his detention and how his welfare was treated.

It's also reviewing bodycam footage worn by officers, getting their personal accounts of what happened and speaking witnesses.

Chad's family say they hope to get more information about what happened that evening, over the next few days.
