Moors Murderer Ian Brady appears at mental health tribunal

Moors Murderer Ian Brady has appeared in public for the first time in decades, at a hearing considering his sanity as he seeks to end his own life.

Brady, 75, has been on hunger strike since 1999, but is being fed by tube at Ashworth Hospital, Merseyside.

He claims he faked psychotic episodes and wants the mental health tribunal to allow a move to a prison in Scotland.

He and girlfriend Myra Hindley murdered five children in the 1960s, burying some on moors in Greater Manchester.

Danny Savage reports.
