Ex tells of Raoul Moat gun terror

The former girlfriend of gunman Raoul Moat has told a court of the moment the killer shot dead her new boyfriend then turned his shotgun on her.

Moat, 37, shot Samantha Stobbart, 22, through the window of a friend's home in Gateshead, then went on to kill her 29-year-old boyfriend Chris Brown.

Miss Stobbart wept as Newcastle Crown Court heard how Moat "just appeared" and started shooting on 3 July.

She was giving evidence at the trial of two men accused of aiding Moat.
