Ida Atiba's Luton park gun death 'self-inflicted'

An inquest jury has ruled that a father-of-two died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a 16-hour stand-off with police.

Mr Atiba, 31, of Wolfsburg Court, Luton, died in January 2011 at Leagrave Common playing fields in the town.

The inquest heard he had made a past suicide attempt and had threatened to kill himself.

His family believe the outcome could have been different if they had been allowed to act as intermediaries.
