Met Police will 'reflect on the findings' of Saunders inquest

A barrister who was shot by police marksmen following a five-hour armed stand-off in west London was lawfully killed, an inquest jury has found.

The siege began after Mark Saunders, 32, fired shots from his home in Markham Square, Chelsea, on 6 May 2008.

The Westminster Coroner's Court jury found the actions of the officers were lawful, proportionate and reasonable.

Commander Christine Jones gave the reaction of the Metropolitan Police to the verdict outside court.
