Duggan: Police officers 'should not confer'

Police officers could be banned from conferring in the aftermath of fatal shootings like that of Mark Duggan.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission says it plans to issue new guidance advising that officers should be separated before they give statements about what happened.

Conferring among officers has been a controversial issue in a number of cases, including the death of Brazilian electrician Jean Charles de Menezes.

"It's our view that officers should be separated in death cases before they give their accounts."
