Moat tributes 'recreational emotion'

One man's villain is another man's hero, which seems to be true in the case of Raoul Moat, the gunman who kept Northumbria Police at bay for a week.

Prime Minister David Cameron told the Commons he was astonished that Moat had become some sort of hero, with thousands of fans on the social networking website, Facebook.

Psychologist Dr Aric Sigman and Conservative MP Chris Heaton-Harris analyse the phenomenon surrounding Moat.
