Met chief: Firearms officers to wear video cameras

Firearms officers will start to wear cameras in an attempt "to increase transparency", the Metropolitan Police Commissioner has said.

Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe made the announcement in the wake of the Mark Duggan inquest, saying:

"I want our officers to be able to be open when it comes to the investigations that follow these events. In pursuance of that we're going to ask them to wear video cams so we can record this type of incident."
