Catastrophic errors’ in operation that led to fatal shooting of unarmed man, inquiry finds

North of England Correspondent

A public inquiry has concluded that police made “catastrophic errors” in an operation that led to the fatal shooting of an unarmed man.
Anthony Grainger was shot in the chest in 2012 while sitting in a stationary stolen car during a Greater Manchester Police operation.

The inquiry ruled that the officer who fired the shot had not act unlawfully. But now the family are calling for a new criminal investigation.
