Families Anger Over Jonathan King's Shipman Song
The families of the victims of Harold Shipman have reacted angrily to a song about the killer penned by convicted paedophile Jonathan King.
The video for "The True Story Of Harold Shipman" includes a montage of the serial murderer's victims.
King, 62, claims in the song that Shipman was a victim of the media.
Barry Swann, whose 79-year-old mother Bessie was killed by Shipman in Hyde, Greater Manchester, said the song was "sensationalist rubbish".
The video has been posted on video-sharing website YouTube.
King sings: "Police will inflate and the law says it's fine to accommodate tabloids with a solid headline/But a real psycho monster who's killing for fame would leave notes for acclaim to establish his name."
