Duggan jurors visit Leyton
Kevin Hutchinson Foster, of Neville Road in Hackney, was found guilty by jurors at the Old Bailey in January of giving a weapon to Mr Duggan.
Jury members in the Mark Duggan inquest have visited a road in Leyton today where Mr Duggan was said to have picked up a gun minutes before being shot by police.
Two coaches and a minibus took the jury to Vicarage Road in the last hour so they could inspect the scene.
A court heard Mr Duggan met Kevin Hutchinson-Foster, 30, who supplied him with a gun 12 minutes before Mr Duggan was driven by cab to Tottenham, where he was shot in August 2011.
The road was partly closed by the police while the jury members visited Vicarage Road.
The shooting of Mr Duggan led to riots across London and the rest of the country.
Hutchinson-Foster was jailed supplying a firearm in January.
The jurors then went on to visit the scene of Mr Duggan's shooting in Ferry Lane, Tottenham, near the border with Walthamstow.
The jury panel are visiting the two sites as they will soon hear evidence at the Royal Courts of Justice about whether a gun found 10 to 20 feet away from the site of the shooting was "planted" by the police.
