Raoul Moat's brother: I could have talked him down
The brother of Raoul Moat has criticised police for refusing to allow him to help in stand-off negotiations.
Angus Moat, from Gateshead, said he urged police to allow him to speak to the 37-year-old in the hope of preventing further bloodshed.
Moat is thought to have shot himself early on Saturday after officers cornered him in Rothbury.
Mr Moat said offers to help "talk his brother down" were refused and that despite his crimes he still loved him.
