Police hunting a suspected killer gunman near a rural town in northeast England say they have found a camp where he has been living rough.
A sizeable reward for help in the capture of fugitive Raoul Moat has also been announced as reinforcements are brought into the manhunt.
“While the search is focusing on the Rothbury area, I am mindful of the potential for Mr Moat to have fled the area,” Detective Chief Superintendent Neil Adamson told a news conference.
“We have decided to offer a 10,000 pound reward for information which leads directly to Mr. Moat’s detention.”
Just out of jail, Moat is suspected of shooting his former girlfriend, killing her boyfriend, and then critically injuring a policeman on Tyneside.
Now Moat is believed to be hiding in the countryside further north around Rothbury where police say a tent and the second of two letters apparently written by him have been found.
