Moors murderer Ian Brady ran up £19k security bill AFTER his death – including £2,500 for police to guard his dead body

MOORS murderer Ian Brady stung taxpayers for £19,000 — after his death.

It included £2,570.40 for Merseyside Police to guard his body at Ashworth Hospital after he died in May aged 79.

The Royal Liverpool Hospital spent £15,500 transferring him to its morgue and on security.

And his October cremation cost Sefton council £1,070 — including £35 for a biodegradable urn.

The figures were revealed after Freedom of Information requests.

Brady and Myra Hindley killed five children in the 1960s and buried them on Saddleworth Moor.

Terry Kilbride, 63, whose 12-year-old brother John was murdered by Brady, told The Sun: “We’ve paid for him all his life.

“We had an idea of how much it’s cost to keep him in – the expense of the police and Ashworth Hospital and so on.

“It all mounts up. Obviously he’s had to be buried by the state but all his money should go towards paying it back. No one should have to pay any more for him.”

It comes despite The Sun revealing he left thousands of pounds for animal charities in his last will and testament as he loathed authorities.

A TaxPayers' Alliance spokesman told The Sun: "Even the worst criminals should be treated fairly under the law, that principle is what makes our justice system work.

"At the same time, it is wrong that taxpayers should foot the bill for these costs when he had a substantial estate.

"This is an exceptional case and the costs of administering it should be borne by Brady's estate, not the taxpayers' who have spent so much on him already."
