Moors Murderer Ian Brady loses prison move bid

Ian Brady has lost his bid to be transferred from a psychiatric hospital back to prison.

He had requested a transfer to a Scottish prison, but Ashworth Hospital said he had chronic mental illness and needed continued care at the Merseyside top-security facility.

He was jailed for three murders in 1966 and has been at Ashworth since 1985.

Judith Moritz reports.
