Treating Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe back in prison
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.
