Psychiatrists found Margaret Moran 'unfit to plead'

The judge said two distinguished psychiatrists instructed by the defence had concluded former Labour MP Margaret Moran was unfit to plead, and a psychiatrist instructed by the prosecution broadly agreed.

All the evidence in the case was that she was unfit to plead. If I had reached any other conclusion my decision would have been perverse and would inevitably have been successfully appealed.

– Mr Justice Saunders
