PLEASE LISTEN TO ‘SEASON 5 - EPISODE 1’ FOR PART ONE OF THIS TWO-PART CASE.
Raoul Moat had been on the run from the police. Using a double-barrelled shotgun, Moat fired the weapon at his ex-girlfriend, Samantha Stobbart. She suffered life-threatening injuries. In the same attack, Moat murdered her new partner, Chris Brown. Moat was obsessed and could not face the fact that his six-year relationship with Samantha had ended.
Under the mistaken belief that Chris Brown was an officer of the law, Moat now wanted revenge against the police. Not even 24 hours later, with the same weapon, he shot PC David Rathband as he sat stationary in his patrol car. Police tracked Moat down to Rothbury in Northumberland — a place Moat used to visit when he was a child. He had evaded capture for a week before he was finally spotted (Part 2 of 2).
