Duggan family: 'He wasn't a gangster'

The mother and aunt of Mark Duggan, shot dead by police in north London in 2011, say the father of six was not involved in gangs.

Mark Duggan, whose death sparked riots in England in 2011, was lawfully killed, an inquest jury has said by a majority of 8 to 2.

He was shot by armed police in Tottenham on 4 August 2011.

He had been travelling by minicab when he was stopped by an armed unit as part of a police intelligence-led operation.

A jury has been hearing evidence for the past 12 weeks at the inquest held at the High Court in London.

The BBC's Home Affairs Correspondent Matt Prodger spoke to Mark Duggan's mother Pamela Duggan and his aunt Carole Duggan.
