Secrecy still surrounds Hindley's funeral arrangements.
Police refused to give a clue on when the funeral might take place, only revealing a contingency plan had been prepared for Hindley to be cremated in Cambridge.
It is understood the arrangements would have to be discussed with Hindley's relatives, including her elderly mother Nellie, who lives in a Manchester nursing home, before final plans are laid.
