G20 protesters Thursday demanded a public inquiry into the death of a man during Wednesday's violent demonstration which saw clashes between protesters and police.

A protester from the G20 Meltdown group, which organized four parades that converged outside the Bank of England on the eve of the G20 summit of world leaders, told Sky News that an investigation was necessary and they were collecting information themselves to figure out the truth.

"We are appealing for anyone who knows the circumstances of his death to provide us with information," the protester was quoted in a vigil, held outside the Bank of England at lunchtime to mark the man's death.

"This is not a publicity stunt. We just want to know the truth." the protester added.

A post on the G20 Meltdown's Twitter account had announced that the vigil aimed "to mark the death of a protester and demand answers."

The unnamed victim was found unconscious in a street near the bank just before 7:30 pm Wednesday as thousands of people gathered in the financial center of London in a demonstration which eventually turned violent and saw 86 arrests.

Police said that they were pelted with missiles believed to include bottles as they tried to save the man's life. He was taken to hospital but later died.
