Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe sent to jail after 32 years in psychiatric hospital


Yorkshire ripper Peter Sutcliffe is back in prison for the first time in 32 years.

The serial killer, 70, was transferred from cushy hospital Broadmoor to tough Category A Frankland jail in Durham, it was reported.

He spent his first night in the cells last night after three decades inside the mental health facility which cost the taxpayer an estimated £11million.

He was given 20 life terms in 1981 for murdering 13 women and trying to kill seven more and will never be released.

The monster spent three years inside Parkhurst, Isle of Wight, before moving to Broadmoor in Berkshire in 1984.

He was deemed fit to return to jail after a tribunal decided he was sane earlier this month.

Families of the victims have said they think he will not last inside.

Speaking to the Mirror after the tribunal ruling former midwife Irene Vidler, 73, who thinks the ripper killed her dad her father Fred Craven in 1966 welcomed the jail move.

She said: I’m glad he’s going to prison, somewhere he can be punished. But I don’t think he’ll last long in there. Not when the other inmates get hold of him.

Sources claim the prison move has made the ripper spiral into depression and sick with fear.

Last night the Ministry of Justice said: We do not comment on individuals.
