The retrial of a man accused of supplying a gun to Mark Duggan, whose fatal shooting sparked last year’s August riots, will take place in January, it was decided today.

Kevin Hutchinson-Foster, 30, is accused of supplying Mr Duggan with a gun 15 minutes before he was shot dead by police marksmen on August 4 last year.

His death in Ferry Lane, Tottenham, north London, sparked riots which swept across the capital and the country.

Last month a jury at Snaresbrook Crown Court failed to reach a verdict in the case.

A retrial will start at the Old Bailey on January 7, Judge David Radford ruled today.

It will precede an eight-week inquest into Mr Duggan’s death, which coroner Andrew Walker has scheduled for January 28.

After a pre-inquest review at North London Coroner’s Court earlier last month, Mr Duggan’s family said they hoped for the first time that the truth would come out about his death.
