Brady tribunal costs 'well worth it'

The tribunal that determined Moors murderer Ian Brady is chronically mentally ill and should remain at Ashworth Hospital was "well worth it," a relative of one of his victims has said.

Alan West, whose stepdaughter Lesley Ann Downey was killed in 1964, said the tribunal process had showed that Brady was manipulative and his plan to move prison had "backfired on him".

Correction 25 July 2013: An earlier version of this story wrongly suggested Ian Brady's legal fees cost £250,000.
