Mother of Moors murder victim Keith Bennett to be buried

The funeral of Winnie Johnson, the mother of Keith Bennett, murdered by Ian Brady, will take place in Manchester today.

78-year-old Winnie had been suffering from cancer for a number of years and passed away peacefully, but without fulfilling her final wish - to find the body of her son and give him a Christian funeral and burial.

Winnie has always maintained that Ian Brady remembers where the body was hidden and appealed to him directly to reveal the location before she died. ITV News reporter Sally Biddulph reports on the mother who never gave up her fight for her son.
