Duggan family 'felt let down' by police and IPCC

A complaint about the Metropolitan Police's failure to inform Mark Duggan's family of his death has been upheld by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Mr Duggan, 27, was shot dead as armed police tried to arrest him in Tottenham in August 2011.

The incident sparked a riot that subsequently escalated into widespread violence, looting and arson in London and other major English cities.

IPCC Commissioner Rachel Cerfontyne said: "What is clear from this case is that a grieving family, suffering from shock, felt badly treated by police and the IPCC".
