Mark Duggan’s family ‘outraged’ over shooting publicity

Mark Duggan’s family felt “a deep sense of injustice” when details of his shooting by police were revealed during a criminal trial, a court has heard.

Michael Mansfield QC said the inquest into Mr Duggan’s death in Tottenham, north London, was put at risk by the trial of Kevin Hutchinson-Foster.

Mr Hutchinson-Foster was accused of supplying a gun to Mr Duggan, 29, on 4 August 2011 but the trial became “synonymous” with Mr Duggan’s name.

His death sparked last summer’s riot.

An eight-week inquest into Mr Duggan’s death is expected to begin on 28 January.
