Yorkshire Ripper victim: 'I'll never forget that face'

The High Court is set to rule on the minimum prison term that the man known as the Yorkshire Ripper must serve before he can be considered for parole.

Peter Coonan - formerly Peter Sutcliffe - is serving 20 life sentences in Broadmoor for the murders of 13 women and seven attempted murders.

The trial judge recommended he serve at least 30 years. The Yorkshire Ripper's crimes took place across the north of England between 1975 and 1980.

Theresa Toth, then Theresa Sykes, was 16 when she was attacked by Peter Sutcliffe near her home in Huddersfield on Bonfire night 1980.

She returned to the scene with the BBC's Home Affairs correspondent, June Kelly, and recalled events of that night.
