Hindley died of pneumonia, inquest told

Moors murderer Myra Hindley died of bronchial pneumonia due to problems with her heart, an inquest heard.

Home Office pathologist Dr Michael Heath told the hearing the 60-year-old suffered from high blood pressure and poor blood supply to the heart, resulting in blocked coronary arteries.

The inquest was opened and adjourned at Highpoint Prison near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

Greater Suffolk coroner Peter Dean said a jury hearing would take place at a later date, which has not yet been set.
