Carole Duggan, the aunt of Mark Duggan, has rubbished accusations her nephew was a 'gangster', telling ITV News Correspondent Rageh Omaar he did not live a 'gangster lifestyle' and was "just an ordinary man. He struggled like any other working class person would do."
Carole Duggan, the aunt of Mark Duggan, has told ITV News all the family wants from tomorrow's vigil in Tottenham is a peaceful gathering to respect Mark's death.
She added that if anyone is planning to attend the vigil to hijack the family's campaign, they are asked not to come.
The Duggan family pastor has said that they still feel "very raw about the verdict" that Mark Duggan was lawfully killed when he was shot by police.
It comes after police watchdog, the IPCC, said they had contacted the Duggan family solicitor to try and meet with the family.
Nims Obunge told ITV News: "It's right that the IPCC go through the family solicitors and await a response from the family.
"It's very early, the family feel very raw about the verdict and I think that we've just got to wait for the right time and the IPCC need to wait for the right time."
The police watchdog has said that it is arranging a meeting with Mark Duggan's family.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) tweeted to say that they will not release further details until after the meeting:
We are working with the #Duggan family solicitor to arrange a family meeting & don't intend to release further info until this has happened
Met Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe has told UK Editor Lucy Manning that he cannot judge if the force is still institutionally racist as it is for others to decide and admitted that if that is still how the police is seen then they must be:
Met boss on Met still institutionally racist? "Its for someone else to make that judgement. If people believe we are then presumably we are"
The Met Police Commissioner has said that the force have tried to improve their relations with the black community in London.
Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said: "Over the last couple of year, we've done an awful lot to build the trust of the black community. We've reduced our stop and search by about a third.
"We've actually improved our effectiveness of stop search and we've also made sure that we've had less complaints - that was a real issue around the time Mark Duggan was shot."
Met Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe has stood by the conclusions of the Mark Duggan inquest.
When asked by UK Editor Lucy Manning if he felt the Duggan family are owed an apology he said: "I'm not going to talk about apologies. I think the only thing I can do is respect the outcome of the jury's verdict, clearly the family still has concerns and are asking questions."
He went on to say that although he was not worried about trouble on the streets of London, "we'd be foolish not to at least consider the possibility."
UK Editor Lucy Manning has said the Met Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe stood firm on the conclusions of the Mark Duggan inquest:
"I'm not going to talk about apologies" to Duggan family says Met Commissioner & won't be drawn on contradictions in police evidence.
The Met Police Commissioner has admitted his force needs to do more to cut the number of stop and searches to improve relations with the black community after the Mark Duggan inquest:
We know wehave more to do to further reduce the use of stop and search.
That will comethrough better training of our officers and developing the sensitive way inwhich we use our powers.
