L: Mark Duggan, R: Kevin Hutchinson-Foster

The Old Bailey heard that the gun that police found on Mark Duggan on the day of his death was given to him only 15 minutes before. A retrial into the case of Mark Duggan started yesterday with the investigation looking into Kevin Hutchinson-Foster, 30, who is accused of giving Mark the BBM Bruni Model 92 prohibited gun on the day of his death.

Mark Duggan was shot by police after they allegedly found him to be in possession of a loaded firearm.

Kevin Hutchinson-Foster denies supplying Mark with the firearm with prosecutor Edward Brown QC telling the court:

There has been a trial in the past but the jury was discharged with no fault on anybody’s part.

The trial continues.
