Ian Brady's ashes must not be scattered on Saddleworth Moor, coroner demands

  Ian Brady's ashes must not be scattered on Saddleworth Moor, coroner demands Ian Brady's ashes must not be scattered on Saddleworth Moor, coroner demandsBrady snatched youngsters off the street with Myra Hindley before sexually assaulting them and burying some of their bodies in the south Pennines.

Ian Brady ' s body will not be released until the coroner leading his inquest is assured the killer' s ashes will not be scattered on Saddleworth Moor where his victims were buried. In an explosive opening to the Moors Murderer ' s inquest, the 79-year-old' s doctor revealed he died at

The murderer ' s lawyer said there is "no likelihood" that the ashes will be spread at the scene of his crimes as the inquest into Brady ' s death re-opened. Senior coroner Christopher Sumner told the hearing at Southport Town Hall that the 79-year-old' s body will be released to the executor of

The couple's five victims - Pauline Reade, John Kilbride, Keith Bennett, Lesley Ann Downey and Edward Evans - were aged between 10 and 17.

Fifty years on, 12-year-old Keith Bennett has still never been found - despite the belief that Brady knew the location and buried him on the Moors, where he buried three others.

At an inquest on Tuesday, Senior Coroner for Sefton, Christopher Sumner, delayed the release of the body to ask for assurances that a funeral director and crematorium willing to take it had been found. He also wanted a guarantee that Brady's remains would not be taken to Saddleworth Moor.

At a reconvened hearing yesterday the coroners' court heard Brady's solicitor, Mr Makin, had said there was "no likelihood" the ashes would be scattered there.

Mr Sumner delayed the body's release further to allow Merseyside Police to negotiate with Mr Makin about arrangements for the funeral.

And the coroners' office today confirmed the relevant mortuary release form had been sent to the place where the killer's body is being held under armed guard - therefore releasing the body to the executor of his will, Mr Makin.

Mr Nuttall said his support for capital punishment is not official Ukip policy. Mr Nuttall also defended Ukip’s manifesto for attempting to justify calls to ban the burka and niqab as the face-covering veils “prevent intake of essential vitamin D from sunlight”.He told ITV’s Peston On Sunday: “There’s a myriad of medical research which shows if you don’t show your face or the rest of your body to the sun there will be vitamin D deficiencies.”Told that is not why he wanted to ban the burka, Mr Nuttall added: “That’s peripheral.
