Mother of man killed by police won't challenge decision not to charge officer

The mother of a man who was shot dead by police in Wood Green, has said she will not challenge the latest decision by prosecutors, not to bring charges against the officer involved.

But Margaret Smith said she hopes the inquest will reveal the full circumstances of her son's death.

Jermaine Baker died in December 2015 as police foiled a plot to free an inmate from a prison van.

A decision by the CPS, not to prosecute, was upheld this week following a review.
