Met chief 'won't talk about apologies' for Duggan

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."
