The final insult: Taxpayers face paying for Yorkshire Ripper’s funeral

Once one of the most feared criminals in the country, serial killer Peter Sutcliffe died aged 74 on Friday after reportedly refusing treatment for Covid-19. Sutcliffe was given a whole life term in 1981 after being convicted of murdering 13 women and the attempted murder of seven more. It has cost over £10million to keep him behind bars ever since.
