Hogan-Howe: Cameras will help get 'best evidence possible'

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe has said cameras to be worn by police in a new trial will help collect "the best evidence possible".

Ten London boroughs are trialling the scheme which will see 500 cameras distributed to officers.

The pilot scheme comes as the force was criticised following the death of Mark Duggan at the hands of armed officers.

Mr Duggan, 29, was shot in Tottenham, north London, in August 2011. His death sparked riots in the area, which later spread across England.
