The BBC has apologised for a segment on a local radio station during which listeners were asked to guess the identity of a mystery person, who turned out to be Moors murderer Ian Brady.

BBC Radio Leeds ran a news-related feature during Sunday’s breakfast show asking people to guess who the person was after listening to four songs as clues.

DJ Nathan Turvey, who was standing in for Radio Leeds’ regular Sunday presenter, played Mott The Hoople’s All The Young Dudes and The Brady Bunch theme song, followed by The Smiths’ Suffer Little Children, which was written in memory of the Moors murders.
