Duggan family 'still feel very raw' after inquest

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."

"Given that we have so far established that 22 of the officers are now deceased that leaves us with 218 officers to interview", it said in a statement.

"Contact with seven former officers has led us to taking the view that they are not fit for interview on health grounds, while nine other former officers have declined to be interviewed", the IPCC added.

Hillsborough Witness Appeal responses 'top 1,500'

The IPCC's renewed Hillsborough Witness Appeal has received more than 1,500 responses to date, the investigation's lead commissioner announced.

"The witness appeal has also prompted more than 200 requests from witnesses to see their original accounts", she said, adding, "Work is ongoing to facilitate these requests".

IPCC investigates Sussex Police officers over Savile

Two Sussex Police detectives who dealt with a sex crime claim against Jimmy Savile in 2008 have been referred to the IPCC police watchdog.

A woman came forward in March 2008 to claim that disgraced television presenter Savile assaulted her in a caravan in around 1970 when she was in her early 20s.

This was referred to prosecutors with three other allegations against the performer received by Surrey Police, but in 2009 the Crown Prosecution Service decided no action could be taken.

IPCC appeals for witnesses amid Hillsborough inquiry

The police watchdog is appealing for witnesses as part of its investigation into how West Midlands Police conducted its inquiries into the Hillsborough disaster.

Deborah Glass, deputy chair of the Independent Police Complaints Commission, said: "We have already had a number of people contact us with concerns that their statements were amended and we have no doubt there are others who have not contacted us.

"We want to be able to present as full as possible a picture of witness evidence both for the inquests and the criminal investigations."
