79 year old Brady, who alongside Myra Hindley, tortured and murdered five children in the 1960s, is said to be receiving "round the clock treatment and observation from nurses who specialise in assisting terminal cancer patients".

The serial killer was jailed for three murders in 1966.

Four of the victims were buried on Saddleworth Moor, near Oldham.

Myra Hindley died in 2002.

Moors Murderer Ian Brady has died at the age of 79, an NHS spokesman has confirmed tonight. Pauline Reade, 16, Lesley Ann Downey, ten, and Edward Evans, 17 were Brady and Hindley's other victims.

His request was turned down in 2013 on the grounds of his chronic mental illness and he refused to take part in a further review of his case in 2016, after it was ruled his solicitor Robin Makin could not be involved.

A source from Ashworth Hospital told the Sun: "He is gravely ill and everyone there is prepared for him dying".

Brady has never revealed the location of the remains of Keith Benner, who was 12 when he was killed.

Terry Kilbride, whose brother John, 12, was also murdered by Brady, begged him to tell police where he dumped the body of Keith Bennett, who went missing aged 12 in 1964.

"Now is the time for him to stop playing tricks and come clean".

Brady was reportedly a patient at a high security psychiatric hospital in Merseyside when he died, while a court hearing in February revealed he was suffering from emphysema and had been bedridden for years. "That has to come from him".

Mr Kilbride said he hoped the killer would rot in hell when he died and said he'd celebrate his death.
