A letter in which Moors Murderer Ian Brady claims to have killed four more people has been published for the first time, on the Daily Telegraph website.
In the seven page letter, written by Brady in 1989, he said he killed two men in his native Glasgow and then killed a man and a woman in Manchester, where he and his partner Myra Hindley abducted and murdered five children in the 1960s.
But Greater Manchester Police said the claims have been thoroughly investigated and found to be "completely unsubstantiated".
Moors murderer Ian Brady has been told he cannot be transferred to prison from the maximum security hospital where he is being held.
Yesterday, I said Ian Brady didn't strike me as having a "chilling or sinister" presence any more. I'm reviewing that opinion now.
Moors murderer Ian Brady has spoken publicly for the first time in almost 50 years while giving evidence at his mental health tribunal.
