Murder Mile Walks - THE BLACKOUT RIPPER
"...one of the best quirky, curious & unusual things to do in London"
Did JACK THE RIPPER ever exist? No, of course he didn't. Jack the Ripper is just a name, a convenient if slightly sensational character, created by eager journalists, during the birth of tabloid, to sell newspapers. But it's such a sensational story that even today, over 120 years on, people still (want) to believe it.
So, was there ever a one-man ripper, murdering prostitutes in London's East End?
No! But... there was in London's West End. During the Blitz of 1942, as London was gripped in terror as German bombers loomed over head, he attacked by night, during air-raids, when London was at it's blackest. And ever street light was out, ever house light was off, every curtain was closed, and every door was shut. The press called him.... The Blackout Ripper.
And he was REAL! Find out more, only on a Murder Mile Walk.
