A high court jury has said Mark Duggan, whose death sparked the 2011 London riots, was lawfully killed by police. The 29-year-old was shot dead by police in Tottenham in August 2011, after officers attempted to arrest him on suspicion of planning an attack. Two days later, Duggan’s relatives marched on Tottenham Police Station and events soon spiraled out of control.

They have reacted to this afternoon’s decision with fury. His aunt has claimed that ‘the majority of people in this country know that Mark was executed’. His brother has vowed to ‘fight till we have no breath in our body for justice’. Outside the Royal Court of Justice, the crowd is reported to have shouted ‘murderers’ after hearing the verdict.
