THE Moors murders trial shocked Britain as details of the horrific crimes emerged.
Ian Brady and Myra Hindley abducted and killed five young victims in and around Manchester between July 1963 and October 1965. At least four were sexually assaulted. Pornographic photos were also taken.
A tape the vile couple made as their youngest victim, 10-yearold Lesley Ann Downey, screamed and pleaded for mercy was played in court at Chester Assizes in April 1966. The judge, Mr Justice Atkinson, described Brady and Hindley as "sadistic killers of the utmost depravity".
Brady, he added, was "wicked beyond belief".
