The family of a man killed in a police search have reacted with anger to the news no charges will be brought against officers over his death.
Habib Ullah, 39, collapsed during a routine stop-and-search in a High Wycombe car park in July 2008.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) decided there was not enough evidence to charge the officers involved. But the police watchdog has found a case to answer for gross misconduct against five Thames Valley officers.

Campaigners have accused the police of double standards as they prepare to hold a vigil to mark the sixth anniversary of the death of Habib ‘Paps’ Ullah. Justice4Paps will hold a peaceful protest outside Wycombe police station on June 19 as it continues its quest for answers over his death.
The 39-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest during a stop-and-search in Sharrow Vale on July 3, 2008. He was being restrained by officers who were trying to force a drugs package out of his throat.
Mr Ullah’s sister, Nasit Mahmood, said the family is still seeking closure six years on from his death – yet pointed to a case last week in which a man was charged and due before the courts within two weeks of allegedly assaulting two officers.

Five police officers and a solicitor could face criminal charges over the death of a man restrained and forced to the ground during a routine stop-and-search operation six years ago.
The officers face possible charges of manslaughter and perverting the course of action after it emerged that they had changed their initial accounts of how Habib Ullah, 39, died at a car park in High Wycombe in July 2008.
