Is West Yorkshire Police responsible for Raoul Moat's death?

It's emerged controversial tasers, yet to be approved by the Home Office, were used on Raoul Moat around the time he shot himself.

The murder suspect died in the early hours of Saturday after a six-hour stand-off with police in Northumberland.

The shotgun tasers, that are more powerful than ordinary stun guns, were used by officers from West Yorkshire Police.

But firearms advisor Roger Gray has defended the move.

He believes the officers involved were trying to do the right thing.

An inquest in to Raoul Moat's death continues.
