PC David Rathband's brother Darren recalls their last conversation

Darren Rathband, twin brother of PC David Rathband, has told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire that he had pleaded with him not to "do anything stupid" just days before the 44 year-old was found hanged at his home in Blyth, in Northumberland.

David, who was left blinded after being shot in the face by fugitive gunman Raoul Moat, had just returned from visiting his brother in Australia.
