ONE of Britain’s most notorious child killers was to be moved to a prison near Uttoxeter, according to previously confidential files.
Details about Myra Hindley’s time in prison and her thoughts while incarcerated are now being revealed due to ‘public interest’, despite the fact they should usually remain secret for another 50 years.
Hindley was jailed for life in May 1966 for the barbaric murders of Lesley Ann Downey, 10, and Edward Evans, 17. She was also an accessory to the horrific murder of John Kilbride, by lover Ian Brady. In 1987 Hindley and Brady confessed to murdering Pauline Reade, 16, and Keith Bennett, 12. Hindley, who was at Highpoint Prison at Stradishall, near Newmark, from 1998, died in 2002 aged 20. The murderess stated in the released documents: “told may move to Foston Hall...I do not want to go there...too far for visits.”
