Moors Murderer Ian Brady's body dumped in sea in early-morning funeral

Moors Murderer Ian Brady's body dumped in sea in early-morning funeral”

Ian Brady's ashes were buried at sea after a cremation in Southport last Wednesday, officials have confirmed.

Under police escort the corpse was taken to Southport Crematorium where the cremation began at 22:00 BST, with no music or flowers allowed.

He was placed on a weighted biodegradable urn, before being driven to Liverpool Marina and dispatched at sea the following day at 2.30am, court documents reveal.

The revelation will be a great comfort to the families of his victims following reports they might be scattered on Saddleworth Moor, where at least four of his victims were buried.

Brady, who along with Myra Hindley tortured and killed five children between 1963 and 1965, died of natural causes and it was reported that he had requested that his ashes be scattered in Glasgow, where he grew up.

The murderer died at Ashworth Hospital aged 79 in May this year.

Relatives of the victims feared that Brady would have his ashes spread over the moor, but a court ruled out the possibility earlier this month. Hindley died in 2002 and her remains were treated in a similar way, with a late cremation after 20 undertakers refused to handle her burial.

Brady was given whole life sentences for the murders of John, Lesley Ann and Edward.

In 1985, he also admitted killing Pauline Reade, 16, and 12-year-old Keith Bennett, whose body has never been found. Hindley was convicted of killing Lesley Ann Downey and Edward Evans, and shielding Brady after John's murder.

Despite pleas from Keith's mother Winnie Johnson, who died in 2012, Brady did not reveal where her son was buried.

The order effectively denied Brady of his last request.

Brady died of obstructive pulmonary disease and cor pulmonale, a condition that causes the right side of the heart to fail, just after 6pm on Monday (15 May) after serving 51 years in prison.

The court heard Brady, who was a heavy smoker up until the smoking ban, had "very severely diseased" lungs.

9pm - Brady's body collected from the mortuary at the Royal Liverpool hospital by an appointed official from Tameside council and a pathologist who attended his post-mortem.
