His brother Carl, 58, said yesterday: “My brother could never find it in his heart to say sorry for all the lives he destroyed — so I’m doing it.
“It should have been him saying sorry.
“But, given that he didn’t, I’m happy to say sorry.”
Like the rest of the family in Bingley, West Yorks, Carl had no idea his brother was responsible for 13 murders. He told how they were as terrified as everyone else.
He said: “My sisters would walk around with carving knives in their handbags. They were probably the safest women on the planet, but they didn’t know it.”
Carl found out about Peter’s 1981 arrest in someone’s paper in a library. He said: “I leant over and said, ‘bloody hell, that’s my brother’s house’.
“The man replied, ‘look’s like your brother’s the Yorkshire Ripper then’.”
Exclusive: Jail bug fear
DOZENS of inmates and staff at the Ripper’s prison are thought to have fallen ill with Covid-19.
Peter Sutcliffe tested positive at HMP Frankland in Co Durham after returning from five nights in a nearby hospital.
He was isolated and returned to hospital days before he died. A source said: “Frankland is ravaged with Covid. It’s being taken extremely seriously.”
The Ministry of Justice is “closely monitoring the situation”.
