Convicted child killer Robert Black dies in prison

A man who murdered four children from across the UK in the 1980s including Morley schoolgirl Sarah Harper, has died in prison.

Robert Black was convicted in 1994 of murdering the 10-year-old.

He snatched her as she went to buy a loaf of bread from a corner shop. Her body was found dumped in the River Trent, near Nottingham a month after she disappeared.

Black's other victims were nine-year-old Jennifer Cardy from Northern Ireland and 11-year-old Susan Maxwell and five-year-old Caroline Hogg both from Scotland.

Black died of natural causes in Maghaberry prison.
