Police have met community leaders and relatives of Mark Duggan, the man whose shooting by armed officers was ruled lawful on Wednesday.

Duggan did not have a gun when he was shot, and his family have angrily criticised the verdict.

The shooting in August 2011 led to the UK's most serious riots in recent years.
