Police apologise for not telling parents of Mark Duggan's death

The Metropolitan Police and the body responsible for handling complaints against the police have apologised to the family of Mark Duggan, whose shooting in Tottenham triggered last summer's riots.

It comes after Mr Duggan's parents complained that no one had formally told them about their son's death.

BBC Radio 5 live's Shelagh Fogarty spoke to Pastor Nims Obunge, a friend of the Duggan family who was at Tottenham Old Town Hall where the report was published on Wednesday.
