One-eyed police killer Dale Cregan has been admitted to maximum-security Ashworth Hospital because of his behaviour.

Cregan, 30, is now in the secure mental hospital, where Moors Murderer Ian Brady is serving his sentence, after being moved from Strangeways jail in Manchester.

The father of one was put in the hospital wing at the jail before his transfer yesterday after refusing food.

He was jailed for life at Preston Crown Court for the ruthless murders of two unarmed policewomen and a father and son. The gangster, who had had served only minimal time in jail before, was told he will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
