Farewell to a murderer.
Twelve mourners, including the priest who conducted last night's 20-minute service, were at the City of Cambridge crematorium to say farewell to one of the country's most reviled killers.
As her body was driven from West Suffolk Hospital, Bury St Edmunds, on her final journey, a doctor muttered: "Good riddance" as the coffin went by.
When she arrived at the City of Cambridge Crematorium her hearse was greeted by a home made cardboard sign, which read: "Burn in Hell."
Passing lorry drivers hooted their horns in disgust and shouted with derision. Hindley died of pneumonia last Friday.
