PC David Rathband relives shooting in new book
BLINDED PC David Rathband relives the horrifying moment he was shot by gunman Raoul Moat in his new book.
PC Rathband’s life-changing experience is told in graphic detail in his new autobiography, Tango 190, which is set to hit stores soon.
He also tells of the moment he watched Moat’s pals, Karl Ness and Qhuram Awan, jailed for life for helping the bouncer become Britain’s biggest fugitive. PC Rathband was gunned down in Newcastle, in the early hours of Sunday July 4 last year, just 24 hours after Moat shot his ex-partner Samantha Stobbart, 22, and killed her new lover Chris Brown, 29, in Birtley, Gateshead.
He lost his sight after he was shot twice in the face by Moat as his patrol car was parked up on an A1 roundabout.
The autobiography also tells of PC Rathband’s courageous battle to rebuild his life, with the help of his family, in the wake of his terrible injuries suffered in the line of duty.
PC Rathband said: “This is my story told in full and in my own words for the first time. For the past nine months I’ve said what needed to be said, conscious that the legal process had to take its course. Now, for the first time, I can tell the whole truth from the start to finish. The story begins long before July 4, and for me there can never be an end.”
