Mark Duggan's aunt Carole has said the family will fight the inquest decision of lawful killing "through the courts" and urged for calm.

On Wednesday, a jury concluded Mr Duggan was lawfully killed when he was shot dead by police in August 2011.

Carole Duggan said: "No demonstrations, no more violence, we will have to fight this and go through the struggle peacefully to get justice."

Mr Duggan's death in Tottenham, north London sparked widespread disorder.

She also called for the Independent Police Complaints Commission to review the case, adding that the family were in shock and turmoil at the decision.
