Fugitive gunman Raoul Moat has written another letter while on the run – this time to his ex-girlfriend, police in the UK revealed today.
Detective Chief Superintendent Neil Adamson said Moat had been living rough near Rothbury in Northumbria.
The “personal” letter, found in a tent he had been hiding in in a secluded spot, re-asserted his belief that Sam Stobbart’s new partner was a policeman.
DCS Adamson stressed again to Moat that the man, Chris Brown, who was shot dead at the weekend, was not a police officer.
Northumbria’s temporary chief constable Sue Sim said “no stone will be unturned” as she appealed for continued support from the public.
She said that while Moat was a dangerous man, officers believe his main target is the police.
Northumbria Police offered a £10,000 (€12,000) reward for information which leads to Moat being captured.
