Notorious Moors murderer Ian Brady remains in hospital after suffering a suspected seizure in prison.

The serial killer spent a second night in Fazakerley Hospital, Liverpool, after becoming ‘acutely physically unwell’ on Monday.

The 74-year-old was jailed in 1966 for murdering three children, and has been at Ashworth high security psychiatric hospital for more than 25 years.

A statement from Ashworth read: "Ian Brady, a patient at Ashworth Hospital, is still in a general hospital this morning where he spent the night after becoming acutely physically unwell.

"He has undergone a series of tests and was kept in.

"Ian Brady is in a single room and will continue to be accompanied in that room at all times by two nurses from Ashworth Hospital.

"Two other members of Ashworth Hospital staff will also be on duty outside his room throughout his stay in the general hospital."

Brady was due to attend a mental health tribunal next Monday regarding his request to be transferred to a Scottish prison and be allowed to die.

During the 1960s Brady and his girlfriend Myra Hindley murdered five children and buried their bodies in the Saddleworth moors, Oldham.

They lured children and teenagers to their deaths, with the victims sexually tortured before being buried on Saddleworth Moor above Manchester.

Glasgow-born Brady has been tube-fed since refusing food 12 years ago.
