One of Britain's most notorious child murderers, Myra Hindley, has died.

She had been moved from High Point Prison in Suffolk to a nearby hospital suffering severe respiratory problems.

Hindley had been in hospital since Tuesday. She was also admitted earlier this month after suffering a suspected heart attack.

The 60-year-old was jailed for life in 1966 after she and Ian Brady were found guilty of murdering three children.
