A coroner was today appointed to the inquest into the death of Tottenham man Mark Duggan, whose shooting sparked the 2011 summer riots.

Mr Duggan, 29, was shot by police in Tottenham on August 4, 2011 as he climbed out of a minicab allegedly holding a loaded gun.

Judge Keith Cutler, who was unveiled as assistant deputy coroner, will hold a pre-inquest hearing on January 28 at North London Coroner’s Court.

The announcement was made a day after a retrial started at the Old Bailey into the events which led to Mr Duggan’s shooting.

Kevin Hutchinson-Foster, 30, is on trial accused of supplying Mr Duggan with the gun he allegedly held on the day of his death.
