Sky News reports:
Peter Sutcliffe is understood to have died at University Hospital of North Durham, three miles from where he was an inmate at Frankland prison.
He was sent there after developing COVID-19, but is understood to have refused treatment.
The 74-year-old had returned to prison after being treated for a suspected heart attack two weeks ago – but was forced to go back to hospital after testing positive for coronavirus. He had a number of health problems, including diabetes and obesity.
Finally some good from Covid-19.
Sutcliffe murdered at least 13 women, and tried to kill at least seven more.
His crime spree started when he was 23 years old and carried on for 11 more years. He was one of those individuals totally beyond redemption.
