Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe dies aged 74

The Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe has died at the age of 74.

The serial killer was serving a whole life term for murdering 13 women across Yorkshire and north-west England.

He died in hospital where he is said to have refused treatment for Covid-19. Sutcliffe also had a number of other underlying health problems.

The son of his first victim, who was five when his mother was killed, said Sutcliffe’s death would bring “some kind of closure”.

Sutcliffe was convicted in 1981 and spent three decades at Broadmoor Hospital before being moved to HMP Frankland in County Durham in 2016.

Former police officer Bob Bridgestock, who worked on the hunt for Sutcliffe, said he “won’t be shedding any tears”.
