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."
