How sick serial killers Myra Hindley and Rose West became lesbian lovers in jail
A new ITV documentary has revealed how serial killer Myra Hindley and Rose West became lesbian lovers in jail.
Rose West and Myra Hindley: Their Untold Story With Trevor McDonald tonight told how two of Britain's most notorious serial killers in Britain got together in jail, leaving viewers stunned.
Hindley was jailed for life in 1966 for killing five children with her boyfriend Ian Brady, who together were known as the Moors Murderers.
She met fellow twisted psychopath Rose West in HMP Durham who was convicted of 10 murders, including her own daughter and step-daughter, while her husband, Fred was jailed for 12 killings.
When West was sent to HMP Durham in the mid-1990s soon after being sentenced, she is believed to have paired up with fellow child killer Hindley.
The 66-year-old allegedly told her solicitor: "Yeah, Myra, she's all right, we get on, I want to see how it goes," Mirror Online reports.
West was impressed by Hindley's thirst for knowledge, according to her former lawyer, Leo Goatley.
The serial killer had studied at the Open University and West was said to be "impressed by Hindley's knowledge and ability".

Mr Goatley revealed the relationship between the two women in his book Understanding Fred and Rose West.
He said: "Rose's first paramour was the Moors murderer, Myra Hindley, who happened to be on the hospital wing at HMP Durham at the same time in 1995 an early 1996."
He reckons West ended the relationship after saying Hindley could be "very manipulative".

He told the Daily Mail: "When I visited a few months later, Rose's opinion of Hindley had changed dramatically. She was saying, 'You have to watch Hindley, mind.
"She is very manipulative. You don't realise it, but she gets you doing stuff for her. Oh, she's clever, all right. She's flippin' dangerous, that one. She ain't going to take me for a c*** again.' And so heralded the end of the romance."
A source on the show said: “After West was put into the same wing as Hindley, they grew close and fell for each other. They bonded over how similar their crimes were. It was a match made in hell.
"Former prisoners who served time alongside them both have agreed to speak on camera about what they witnessed. It will give viewers new insights into two of the most despicable criminals ever known in Britain."
The one-off special detailed how West and Hindley behaved towards others inside.
In the episode former inmates at the jail tell how West had a terrifying violent temper.
One former inmate also tells how she 'floored West with one punch' after the pair rowed in the prison canteen.
A source said: "Hindley continued to manipulate people from behind bars, just as she deceived the children she abducted, even persuading a nun turned prison guard to help her escape.
"Meanwhile West continued to demand favours off her children, and tried to control their lives from behind bars and she still displays terrifying flashes of rage."
