Raoul Moat Day Six News Round-Up And Pictures: Mam’s Story

by | 8th, July 2010

ROAUL Moat: Anorak’s round-up of the fugitive wanted for, allegedly, killing Chris Brown and shooting PC David Rathband and Samantha Stobbart. Police yesterday offered a £10,000 reward for information leading to Moat’s arrest.

The Accomplices

Karl Ness, 26, from Dudley, North Tyneside, and Qhuram Awan, 23, from Blyth, Northumberland, have been charged with conspiracy to commit murder and possession of a firearm with intent.

Not the Awan I Knew

A NEIGHBOUR who went to school with one of the men arrested in the Raoul Moat manhunt said he must have been “in the wrong place at the wrong time”. Qhuram Awan, 23, from Blyth, Northumberland, was a “good lad” and “always happy”, according to Chris Brown. “If someone said he had been arrested in connection with all this I wouldn’t believe it,” he said.

Chris Brown?

The Mail wonders:

Are gangsters shielding the killer? Mystery man in the bulletproof vest

A man in handcuffs is helping the police. We watched him walk into the woods surrounded by a phalanx of armed police. We were told not to show his face.

Where Are You, Raoul?

The Scotsman wonders:

RAOUL Moat, the fugitive gunman at the centre of a huge manhunt in the northeast of England, continued to elude police yesterday, as authorities admitted he may have escaped from their search area.

Shoot To Kill

Daily Star (front page): “SHOOT ON SIGHT”

Police are ready to nail the 6ft 3in steroid freak

The police believe Moat may be following the news on a phone. The police are appealing for him to give himself up. They are flattering him and reaching out. They call him a “measured individual ”.

And then the Star wades in.

The Force

Daily Mail (front page): “NOW SAS JOINS GUNMAN HUNT”

The Star again:

They were armed with Heckler and Koch G36 assault weapons, which were used in Northern Ireland. Another eight Met armed response vehicles, each carrying three officers tooled up with pistols and Taser stun guns, also arrived in the area. And a crack team of police snipers who specialise in kidnap, hostage and siege situations were brought in, along with their Barrett Light 50 super-guns which can kill a man from up to a mile away.

Excited yet?


The Sun (front page): “YOU’RE BETTER OFF DEAD, SON”

“And that is Moat’s own mother speaking”

Daily Mirror (front page): “I WILL KILL YOU MAM”

No, she’s not threatened to kill the Queen. This is Moat pointing two fingers at his mum’s head. Says Josephine Healey:

“In 2007, a blonde girl brought him to the door. He was threatening to kill me. Why would he do that? “He put up two fingers to me while he was there with her. He did not want anything to do with me. He put his two fingers pointing to me like a gun.”

The Boy I Knew

Says Josephine Moat:

“When he was little he spoke with a lisp. He was so quiet, shy and polite.”

She added: “He was never an angel. He was like all little boys. We used to find him with pockets full of spiders.

The Mail tells us how:

Mrs Healey says her gentle son disappeared when he was 19. She says he was replaced by a snarling individual who hated everything – and everyone.
