Raoul Moat police arrest three men
Three men were arrested today for allegedly assisting an offender during the search for gunman Raoul Moat.
The men were held during raids in Newcastle and Gateshead.
A Northumbria Police spokesman said: "Three men have been arrested this morning in connection with assisting an offender during the search for Raoul Moat.
"The men were arrested from two addresses in Gateshead and one in Newcastle.
"At this stage the investigation is still on-going and further arrests can't be ruled out."
Today's arrests bring the total to 10 made so far in the investigation, police confirmed.
Of those, Karl Ness and Qhuram Awan were arrested on July 6 after they were seen walking along a road in Rothbury.
They were originally thought to have been Moat's hostages but were later charged with conspiracy to commit murder and possessing a firearm with intent.
They appeared at Newcastle Magistrates' Court last week and were remanded in custody.
