Maxine Carr wins anonymity for the rest of her life

PUBLISHED February 25, 2005

Maxine Carr, former girlfriend of the Soham murderer, Ian Huntley, yesterday won a rare lifetime injunction protecting her new identity to safeguard her "life and limb" and "fragile psychological state".

The injunction, like those granted to Robert Thompson and Jon Venables, the schoolboy killers of the toddler James Bulger, and Mary Bell, who killed two children when she was 11, will last until she dies unless lifted by the court.
