Around 150 people gathered outside Tottenham Police Station last week to demand justice for Mark Duggan who was shot and killed by police in 2011.

The vigil had started with a march from Broadwater Farm to the police station on the high road. 

Speakers included, Marcia Rigg, rapper Akala, Stafford Scott and the father of Roger Sylvester. 

Members of the families of Cynthia Jarrett, Smiley Culture and Joy Gardner were also in attendance. 

Mark’s mother Pamela has launched a petition calling on Theresa May to launch a public judge-led inquiry into the practices of Operation Trident.

This is a division of the Met which was established to deal with so-called “black on black” crime.

Speakers at the vigil vowed to continue the fight for justice.
