Arrest in south Wales over Moors murder body location claim

A 49-year-old woman has been arrested in south Wales by police who believe Moors murderer Ian Brady gave her information about the location of one of his child victim's bodies.

Brady is believed to have told the prison visitor where the body of 12-year-old Keith Bennett is buried.

Officers are questioning the woman on suspicion of preventing the burial of a body without lawful exercise.

BBC reporter Ben Geoghan told BBC Radio Wales what is known about the police investigation.
