SICK fans of crazed gunman Raoul Moat aim to mark the tenth anniversary of his death with an all-night party.
They reportedly plan to gather at the spot — now a wildflower meadow — where the 37-year-old shot himself.
Next Thursday marks a decade since the steroid-addicted bodybuilder was found hiding in a storm drain following the UK’s biggest ever manhunt.
Moat blasted himself in the head after a six-hour stand-off with armed police in Rothbury, Northumberland, at 1.12am on July 10, 2010.
Moat became the centre of a mass manhunt after he shot and wounded his ex-girlfriend Sam Stobbart, then 22, and killed her lover Chris Brown, 29 in Birtley Gateshead.
The following day he shot and blinded PC David Rathband, 44, as he sat in his patrol car in Newcastle.
Tragically, the traffic officer took his life in February 2012 after struggling to cope with his disability and the breakdown of his marriage.
On the first anniversary of his death, Moat’s friends and family drank a toast at 1.12am on July 10 – the exact time he shot himself following the armed stand-off.
Northumbria Police say they will use their Covid-19 dispersal powers designed to prevent mass gatherings.
Cllr Steven Bridgett, who represents the town, has urged “idiots” to stay away from the town this year – saying locals “want to move on”.
