Dear Sir or Madam,

The following report states; 'Now Coun Bridgett says he received a phone call from the Deputy Chief Constable Jim Campbell telling him he will have the figures in a few days.'

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would be grateful if NP would also supply me with same information which is being released to Councillor Steven Bridgett, concerning all costs relating to 'The cost of the manhunt for killer Raoul Moat.'

Given ACC Campbell's above assurance, I would be obliged if this information would be relleased to me also 'in a few days' rather than subjecting me to delay when the requested information, according to this article, is already available for release.

I look forward to receiving the requested information.

Yours faithfully,

Martin McGartland

POLICE chiefs have agreed to reveal the cost of the manhunt for killer Raoul Moat.

The move comes seven months after Moat went on the rampage and hid in the village of Rothbury, in Northumberland.

Lib Dem county councillor Steven Bridgett, who represents Rothbury, used the Freedom of Information Act to make an application to find out the cost of the investigation but was initially refused.

Now Coun Bridgett says he received a phone call from the Deputy Chief Constable Jim Campbell telling him he will have the figures in a few days.

Dear Sir or Madam,

You will note that the above news report stated that; "Now Coun Bridgett says he received a phone call from the Deputy Chief Constable Jim Campbell telling him he will have the figures in a few days." This was published in the newspaper on the 7th feb 2011. Please can you confirm if Coun Bridgett has been given the figures yet. If not, when will they be released to him. I would be obliged if NP, as I have requested, could also release those figures and information to me at the same time.

Thank you
