The police watchdog has upheld a complaint by the family of Mark Duggan that they were not told he had been shot dead by officers in London.

Mr Duggan was shot by police last August in Tottenham. Anger over the shooting sparked riots in the area, which spread across the capital and to other parts of England.

Scotland Yard said it had apologised in September to Mr Duggan's parents for not telling them directly about his death.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission said an investigation into the full circumstances of his death was ongoing.
