BBC News - Shot Mark Nunes and Andrew Markland 'had armour-piercing bullets'
Two robbers shot dead by police marksmen were armed with armour-piercing bullets, an inquest heard.
Mark Nunes, 35, and Andrew Markland, 36, both from London, were shot as they held up a G4S van in Hampshire in 2007.
The inquest at Winchester Coroner's Court heard officers discussed arresting the pair, who were on their way to a raid on a cash van.
The jury heard the two armed robbers had not been arrested before because of a lack of evidence.
Retired Hampshire Assistant Chief Constable Steve Watts told the hearing he had given the Metropolitan Police the authority to control the operation as the pair attempted to rob a cash van outside the HSBC bank in Chandlers Ford."all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.
"the world is a dangerous place place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who do not do anything about it" Albert Einstein
