The funeral of the man whose death sparked widespread unrest across England has taken place in his home neighbourhood.

Mark Duggan was shot dead by police in the London suburb of Tottenham one month ago, and the community responded with unrest that amounted to burned buildings, broken windows and some deaths.

The funeral cortege, made up of hundreds or thousands of Londoners, passed through his home area - Broadwater Farm - a part of London that was scarred by riots 26 years ago.

Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from Tottenham.
