Moors Murderer Ian Brady will be questioned by police after it was alleged that he attacked a nurse on July 6 at Ashworth Hospital Merseyside where the country’s most notorious serial killer is held.
Brady, 73, is accused of using a jug to threaten the 51-year-old nurse who was left extremely distressed following the incident which she later reported to her bosses at the high-security hospital.
The nurse then made a formal complaint to Merseyside Police which now gives them the right to question the killer about the alleged assault which is believed not to have been sexual or resulted in any injury to the nurse.
Sources revealed that Brady had been walking along holding a jug and that the jug may have ‘brushed’ the nurse as Brady ‘gesticulates’ a lot.
The serial killers solicitor Richard Nicholas denies that his client did anything wrong:
“Ian Brady denies any improper conduct or assault.”
Merseyside Police said:
“Merseyside Police can confirm that it is aware of an incident in July involving a patient and staff member at Ashworth hospital in which the staff member was allegedly assaulted. A formal complaint has now been made and a police investigation is under way. Officers are in contact with the employee and the hospital management with a view to progressing this matter.”
In the 1960s Moors killers Ian Brady along with his partner Myra Hindley lured five youngsters to their deaths and buried their bodies on Saddleworth Moor, Manchester. Myra Hindley died in a prison hospital aged 60 in November 2002.
