Moors Murderer Ian Brady attacks treatment

Moors Murderer Ian Brady has told a mental health tribunal he has been misdiagnosed as mentally ill.

Brady, speaking publicly for the first time in 47 years, said his actions were interpreted by "opportunistic" doctors and nurses as signs of mental illness.

Brady - wearing a suit and tie, and dark glasses - says he should be moved from a high-security hospital to jail.

Judith Moritz reports.
