For your information the MPS has released the statement below in response to this afternoon's IPCC statement.
'We welcome the most recent update from the Independent Police Complaints Commission into the investigation of the fatal shooting of Mr Duggan, and the additional facts this places in the public domain.
It is in the interest of everyone, the family of Mr Duggan, the public and the police, that the IPCC are able to establish all the facts of the events of last Thursday so that there is a complete understanding of what happened. We appreciate that it is frustrating for people to have to wait for the outcome of the investigation but it is important that the investigation is full and thorough, and the MPS are doing everything possible to assist with that process. In accordance with post incident procedures the CO19 officers involved are not currently performing an operational role.
We would also like to take this opportunity to appeal for calm, Mr Duggan's family have publicly stated that they do not in anyway condone the violence we have witnessed on the streets of London. There can be no excuses for this behaviour.'
I am really grateful for your ongoing support and assistance and really value your tremendous efforts in speaking to other community members in very difficult circumstances.
Stephen Kavanagh DAC Territorial Policing
