Moors murderer Myra Hindley has died in hospital from a serious chest infection following a suspected heart attack two weeks ago.
Hindley, 60, was taken to West Suffolk Hospital at Bury St Edmunds at the beginning of the month.
She was admitted again on Tuesday and she died just before 1700 GMT after respiratory failure, having received the last rites from a Catholic priest.
Hindley was jailed for life in 1966 for murdering two children with her lover Ian Brady, and later confessed to killing two more.
A Prison Service spokesman said Hindley's next of kin had been informed of her death.
A coroner's inquest would now be held, as is routine following the death of any prisoner in custody, he added.
