A retrial started at the Old Bailey today into the events which led to the shooting of Mark Duggan and the Tottenham riots.

Armed police shot Mr Duggan as he got out of a minicab allegedly holding a loaded gun.

The 29-year-old’s death in Tottenham sparked riots that swept across the capital and the country.

Kevin Hutchinson-Foster, 30, is on trial accused of passing the gun to Mr Duggan that same day.

Hutchinson-Foster, of no fixed abode, denies giving the BBM Bruni Model 92 prohibited handgun to Mr Duggan, contrary to the Firearms Act 1968.

Edward Brown QC, prosecuting, told the jury: “There has been a trial in the past but the jury was discharged with no fault on anybody’s part.”
