Together with Pete Weatherby QC and Fiona Murphy of Counsel, Tony Murphy of Bhatt Murphy acts for Mr Grainger’s partner, Gail Hadfield- Grainger.It has been revealed that the GMP officer who fatally shot Anthony Grainger met with the Met officer who shot Mark Duggan on the day before GMP officers provided their detailed accounts of the shooting. This fact was not volunteered by GMP in the five years since Mr Grainger’s death and only became known on 4 April 2017 when his partner’s legal team sought further information regarding a brief entry in one of the officer’s notebooks.
