    Moors Murderer Ian Brady’s remains must be disposed of with “no music and no ceremony”, a judge at the High Court has ruled.

    Brady died aged 79 on 15 May but his remains have not yet been disposed of.

    Two local authorities asked the judge to decide so the serial killer’s body can be “lawfully and decently disposed of without further delay”.

    Sir Geoffrey Vos said Brady’s executor had failed to make proper arrangements for Brady’s disposal.
