Moors murderer collapses after three-month hunger strike

One of Britain's most notorious killers, the Moors murderer Ian Brady, has collapsed after spending nearly three months on hunger strike in a high-security hospital. Brady, who is 61, was transferred to a general hospital after collapsing in his room at the Ashworth facility near Liverpool early this morning. His condition is said not to be life-threatening. Brady and his accomplice Myra Hindley were jailed for life in 1966 for torturing and killing three children.
