Yorkshire Ripper: eye clinic opens early for Peter Sutcliffe, no old people or buses attacked

peter sutcliffe eye Peter Sutcliffe is “strolling in the sun”. Presumably the Yorkshire Ripper also ambles in the rain and strides in the mist. The words are loaded. The Sun is clear that Sutcliffe being allowed to breathe outside the confines of Broadmoor is an outrage.

THE Yorkshire Ripper strolls in the sun at a busy NHS hospital as he is seen in public for the first time in 34 years.

Spare a thought for the nurse and doctors treating him.

Our exclusive picture shows Peter Sutcliffe, 69, on a visit to a leading eye clinic where doctors are trying to save his failing sight.

Sutcliffe was blinded in one eye when fellow murderer Ian Kay repeatedly stabbed him in the face with a pen in 1997.  In 2007, the Sun reported that another went for Sutcliffe with a metal cutlery knife.

The sight in that other eye is failing. It has been for some time.

Broadmoor patient Sutcliffe, who was not handcuffed, shared a joke with security guards during his trip to Surrey’s Frimley Park Hospital. One witness said: “I was shocked.” The serial killer was taken for tests as part of a series of treatments that are costing the taxpayer thousands of pounds.

Anything other than starving him to death in a pit wold cost the taxpayer money.

And what do we think for a man billed as the mass murderer’s ‘friend’? Do we trust him?

But Sutcliffe grumbled about the appointment because he had to get out of bed early. He complained to a friend: “They came and got me up before seven. I don’t like to get up at weekends until at least eight. They didn’t give me any warning, just came and got me and told me I was going to hospital.”

Friend of Ripper says…

Our pictures show a bloated, grey-bearded Sutcliffe, wearing a beige jacket, red trousers, grey Crocs shoes and a cap, flanked by security guards at Surrey’s Frimley Park Hospital.

Red trousers and Crocs… He’s dressed like a holidaying Hooray Henry.

He arrived at the hospital in a dark blue Transit-style van at 7.40am last Saturday, accompanied by five guards from Broadmoor high security hospital. He went into the eye unit by a back door.
