Covid-19: US to donate 500 million more jabs and Covid passport legal challenge in Scotland
The Yorkshire Ripper, one of the UK’s most notorious serial killers, refused measures to shield him from Covid before he died with the disease in prison, an inquest heard. Peter Sutcliffe was more vulnerable to the virus due to his diabetes, heart disease and kidney disease. The 74-year-old was advised to shield by staff at HMP Frankland, where he was serving a life sentence for the murder of 13 women, but declined measures such as eating apart at mealtimes. Concluding that Sutcliffe’s death in November last year was from natural causes, coroner Crispin Oliver said he hoped his victims “may better rest in peace” now.
