Revealed at inquest.
Police chiefs were still seeking information on the unauthorised X-rep Taser from suppliers in Northampton two hours before Moat's death. * Shortly before his apparent suicide, Moat told negotiators he'd hidden another gun in Cragside House estate because he "didn't want kids to find it and get hurt".
Several times during the last few hours of the stand-off, police were forced to clear members of the public from woods directly behind Moat who were trying to take videos and photographs.
