The serial killer's corpse was under police guard while arrangements were made to transfer his remains to Robin Makin, the executor of his will.

Brady, who tortured and killed five children with lover Myra Hindley, died on Monday.

Coroner Christopher Sumner had delayed the release until "assurances" about Brady's funeral arrangements were made.

A Merseyside Police spokesman said the transfer of the body to Mr Makin ended its involvement.
