The inquest into the death of PC David Rathband has heard that he threatened to kill himself on a video-phone so that his wife could watch.
The officer was left blinded after being shot by Raoul Moat in 2010. He was found hanged at this home in Blyth two years later.
A police family liaison officer today told the hearing at Newcastle's Moot Hall that Rathband's estranged wife had received a call from him, threatening to commit suicide on Facetime.
