In the News again. On this day in UK History.

On this day in 1987, infamous Moors murderer Ian Brady offered to assist police searches of Saddleworth Moor for the first time since his conviction.

But Brady is again in the news this week as it is disclosed he will appeal to a Mental Health Tribunal Review on 9th July 2012, as he seeks the right to be moved from a psychiatric hospital to a jail.  He has been on hunger strike since 1999 and being in a mental institution under the Mental Health Act he has to be force-fed.  If he is moved to a jail he can be allowed to starve to death.
