It’s four years since Anthony Grainger was shot dead by a police marksman in a car park in Warrington. Today his family won a public inquiry to find out exactly what happened that day.

It will focus on the events leading up to the unarmed father of two being shot by a Greater Manchester Police officer. His family and friends have always been highly critical of the police operation and subsequent court cases.

Marina Schofield says it’s in the public’s interest to know what happened that night;

“I need to know, the public need to know. It’s in their interest to know what happened on that night.
