Mark Duggan's father dies

DEATH: Mark Duggan

THE FATHER of Mark Duggan has died just a few weeks short of the anniversary of his son's death, his daughter, Paulette, has told The Voice

Bruno Duggan died from cancer, she confirmed.

He is believed to have passed away over a week ago.

Mr Duggan's son, Mark, 29, was shot and killed by a Metropolitan Police marksman in Tottenham, north London on August 4, 2011, in a planned operation to arrest him.

The death of Duggan last summer led to days of rioting in his hometown of Tottenham and around the country. The Independent Police Complaints Commission [IPCC] initially told the media that the slain father of four had shot at officers. They were forced to later apologise when it was revealed that Duggan had not fired at officers.

The death will come as a massive blow to the family, who are still waiting for justice following the shooting.
