The death of Ian Brady was a cause for celebration among the families of his victims as they wished him to "rot in hell".
Relatives wished the murderer "good riddance" after he died just after 6pm last night.
Family members of 10-year-old victim Lesley Ann Downey, who was killed in 1964 tweeted: "Brady the devil’s disciple is DEAD!!! May you rot in F***ING HELL!!!!!!!!!!!”, according to The Times.
Terry Kilbride, the brother of victim John, 12, said he will still have to deal with the "nightmare" Brady has left behind.
He said to The Sun: "It's a lot to take in. It's been years and years of anguish and pain for us and the families of the victims.
"But nothing will change. He's dead but we will have to still live with the nightmare that he left behind.
"He's ruined our lives all these years and he'll still ruin it even though he's gone. I feel numb."
Mr Kilbride added that there were no other words to describe Brady apart from "a murderous psychopath".
Mr Kilbride said he hopes the killer "rots in hell," that they would certainly celebrate his death and said "good riddance."
He told ITV News it was "going to feel good" to see the murderer dead, in an interview recorded on Monday before Brady's death was announced.
He said: "Good riddance that he's gone, I don't drink but I will have a pint.
"And I think that will be the opinion of most people."
Twitter users supported the families of the victims, also wishing Brady to "rot in hell".
Former police officer Norman Brennan, who represented the family of victim Lesley Ann Downey, told Newsnight about the "grief and torment" he saw on the faces of her mother and father.
He told the programme that the grief could never be etched from their minds.
He said Brady and Hindley destroyed the lives of families.
Moors Murderer Ian Brady has died after spending more than five decades behind bars.
