Moors Murderer Ian Brady appears at tribunal

Moors Murderer Ian Brady has appeared in public for the first time in decades at a hearing considering his sanity as part of a bid to take his own life.

Brady, 75, has been on hunger strike for years, but is being force-fed at Ashworth Hospital, Merseyside.

He wants the mental health tribunal to allow a move to a prison in Scotland, where he hopes to end his life.

Danny Savage reports.
