Winnie Johnson 'not told about Brady letter revelation'

The mother of Moors Murder victim Keith Bennett has died.

Winnie Johnson, 78, died on Friday night after a long campaign to get her son's killer, Ian Brady, to reveal where his body is buried.

Twelve-year-old Keith was abducted on his way to visit his grandmother in Manchester on 16 June 1964.

Winnie Johnson's solicitor John Ainley told the BBC that Winnie "never gave up the hope that Keith would be found."
