MOORS Murderer Ian Brady raped teen boys in maximum-security Wormwood Scrubs jail, it has been claimed.
Bombshell Home Office files reveal the twisted child killer was allowed to stay in the cushy prison hospital for several months after a young inmate claimed he had been raped by the monster.
Brady was locked up in 1966 for torturing and murdering five children with girlfriend Myra Hindley.
He went on hunger strike in the 1970s in a bid to get placed on the prison's Mental Observation Landing.
At the time, boys from nearby Feltham Borstal were sent to Wormwood Scrubs Hospital if they were suffering from mental health issues.
One prison document from 1976 shows that wardens were worried by his "unusual interest in any adolescent inmate."
BRADY WAS FREE TO RAPE VULNERABLE TEENS
Another from 1978 reveals the senior medical officer expressed concerns about Brady's contact with vulnerable prisoners.
The officer was fired in Autumn 1981 after a young inmate reported that Brady had had sex with him.
He served time at Wormwood Scrubs in London, Durham, Parkhurst on the Isle of Wight and Gartree, near Market Harborough, Leics.
Frances Crook, chief executive of the Howard League for Penal Reform, told the BBC: "What happened, and what he did in prisons, I think, is not extraordinary.
"Actually, I think it happens and has happened every day for years, and is still happening."
A Ministry of Justice spokesman added: "There have been huge changes in the criminal justice system in the last 40 years and allegations of sexual assault are taken extremely seriously and reported to the police.
"Boys under 18 are placed together in youth custody and those aged between 18-21 are held either in young offender institutions with their own age group, or in designated cells or wings in the adult prison estate.
"We are conducting a review into safeguarding in the youth estate to further improve the welfare of those in our care."
