Roaul Moat Documentary Airs On ITV On Thursday

A chilling new documentary telling of the ruthless rampage of Raoul Moat airs on ITV this Thursday.

Planned for the 10-year anniversary of the killings, Manhunt: The Raoul Moat Story will tell the story behind the largest in modern British history and the week that shook the nation.

In 2010, Newcastle-born ex-con Raoul Moat shot three people and killed one ensuing in an immense manhunt involving 160 armed officers, sniper teams, helicopters, dogs and armoured anti-terrorist vehicles, which latest almost seven days.

In the early hours of the morning on 3rd July, less than two days after being released from Durham Prison, Moat visited a home in Birtley where he shot his ex-girlfriend Samantha Stobbart and her new partner Chris Brown.

Brown died after being shot at close range but Stobbart survived, though she suffered severe injuries to her arm and abdomen.

The following day, Moat went on to shoot Police Constable David Rathband while he was sitting in his patrol car. PC Rathband survived but was permanently blinded from the attack.

Moat had reportedly called Northumbria Police police 12 minutes before shooting Rathband to warn them of his intentions and 50 minutes after complaining police were "not taking me seriously enough".

Chillingly, he told police on the phone after killing the officer: "I'm going to keep coming for you. You're going to have to kill me. I'm never going to stop."

The six-day manhunt followed. Eventually, Moat was recognised and contained in an open air stand off. After almost six hours of negotiation, Moat was shot with a taser gun which proved ineffective. He then shot himself in the head.

Hosted by Nicky Campbell, viewers will hear from police, victims' relatives and witnesses who all saw the horror show firsthand.
