Leyton man who supplied Mark Duggan with a gun blames police for riots
The man who was jailed for supplying Mark Duggan with a gun before he was killed has blamed police for the riots which followed.
Kevin Hutchinson-Foster, 30, giving evidence at the inquest into the death of Mr Duggan, who was shot by police in Tottenham in 2011.
Hugo Keith QC, representing the Metropolitan Police, told Hutchinson-Foster: "Your actions led to unparalleled disorder and remarkable, extraordinary events in London."
Hutchinson-Foster replied: "That was down to the negligence of the police, not down to me.”
This drew cheers from members of Mark Duggan's Family and supporters.
Hutchinson-Foster, who was found guilty of handing a gun to Mr Duggan in Vicarage Road, Leyton, minutes before his was killed by armed officers, had previously told the inquest he plans to appeal his conviction.
