Moors murderer Myra Hindley was yesterday transferred from Durham prison to a medium-security jail. The Prison Service said that she was moved from Durham prison to Highpoint in Suffolk.

A Prison Service spokesman said: "Myra Hindley has today been transferred from HMP Durham to Highpoint prison in Suffolk. She is being housed in closed female accommodation suitable for a life-sentence prisoner. It is an operational decision taken by the Prison Service and it is a routine move for a life-sentence prisoner." News of the move provoked last week anger among relatives of her victims.
