Police release pictures of Moat’s lair

POLICE hunting for suspected killer gunman Raoul Moat today released pictures of his woodland lair.

The pictures show a duvet, tent and sleeping bag found in a secluded area on land at Wagtail Farm, on the outskirts of Rothbury in Northumberland.

Moat’s camping gear was recovered following the arrests of Karl Ness, 26, of Dudley, North Tyneside, and Qhuram Awan, 23, of Blyth, Northumberland.

They were later charged with conspiracy to commit murder and possessing a firearm with intent and were remanded in custody yesterday by a district judge at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court.

Detective Chief Superintendent Neil Adamson said the search continues for Moat, whom police believe is still in the Rothbury area.
