Widow of Mark Saunders gives evidence at inquest

The widow of a barrister shot dead by police in a siege in west London in 2008 has said police stopped her from talking to him during the stand-off.

Elizabeth Saunders said officers told her to switch off her mobile phone when she got to the police cordon around the couple's home.

She said she found a blank text message from him when she switched it back on later.

Daniel Sandford reports.
