  13. Listen: How will the Yorkshire Ripper be treated in a mainstream prison?

    BBC Radio 4

    In 1981 Peter Sutcliffe admitted being the Yorkshire Ripper and described his killing spree as something that "grew and grew until I became a beast"

    For the last 32 years, he has been detained at Broadmoor, the high security psychiatric hospital, having been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. Now, a mental health tribunal has decided he is sane enough to be transferred to a prison.

    Dr Mike Berry, a clinical forensic psychologist, explained to the World at One's Shaun Ley how to treat someone who has committed such crimes.
