Peter Sutcliffe - The Yorkshire Ripper Is Dead.

We were there the night Sutcliffe was arrested.

Little known fact, the staff at 'the Little Mesters' public house in Broomhall actually reported 'a strange character who stood out like a sore thumb' to the Police and it was only after that did the Police come across Sutcliffe.

We knew 3 days before it was actually announced the Police had him in custody.

I always thought it strange the first time Sutcliffe, as far as we know comes to Sheffield to commit murder is he's caught.

 

Dark Days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sutcliffe actually visited Sheffield quite regularly. Where Grenoside crematorium is now the site was a freight company called Lep Air Services. A friend who worked there dealt with Sutcliffe, who was a lorry driver, on a regular basis unaware he was chatting and joking with a mass murderer.

Pretty sure it was. I lived on Clarkegrove Road from 77-79 and walked past that junction most days to the Nottingham House in Broomhill. 

You could drive in through the gate at the Newbould Lane end. Melbourne House was the teacher training centre. I spent quite a few wasted weeks there in the mid 80s.  From memory, the bollards went into the gate in about 1990.

 

ETA: I’ve just consulted with a very long standing member of staff at King Ted’s who thinks that the end of the road was blocked in 1995.
 

It wasn’t a drive that you’d choose to make though.

Hello Charliewag.

My point was more to do with as far as we know, this was the first time he'd come over to commit murder.

Other posts on here state that he chose the site for the attempted murder i'm sure this is wrong and that  it was his intended victim with her local knowledge that chose Melbourne Avn. 

Not taking anything away from the Police for catching Sutcliffe but even they admitted  it was no more than a routine stop which wasn't unusual in that area at the time. 

Another Working girl had already turned him down (if reports at the time are to believed) because she didn't feel safe with him and as i said both Staff and customers at the Little Mesters had already contacted the police because of their concerns.

 

Dark Days

I'm disgusted the media is dedicating so much time to this person. What about the families of his victims having to see the story covered over and over again. Let's have a little more respect shown to them.

There are more important issues at the moment rather than to cover a story which is over 30 years old.

Hello Forgeman.

The present story isn't 30 years old and from what iv'e seen there has been no glorification of this mans crimes.

Although Sheffield was never directly affected by any of his murders they were very dark days back then.

Women would have their  partners collect them from work and going out alone at night was a definite No No.

I get your concerns over the Families of the Victims but like all history is something that shouldn't not be talked about or forgotten.

 

Keep safe

I think it’s because after watching it on the news every night, and it kept saying Leeds, then Wearside Jack, we were all astonished when it came up on a news flash that he had been found in Sheffield. ! ( Next road to my moms flat! )

What a shame !!!!

What difference does it make.

 

He still lived 40 yrs after capture and judging by some reports, most of the time inside Broadmoor was cushy.

I agree the present story is new but why does everyone refer back to the original crimes of yesteryear.

So cushy he got stabbed in both eyes and nearly strangled there.

 

Only Ronnie Kray was in Broadmoor.
