The Yorkshire Ripper reportedly threatened Ronnie Kray after the gangster “approached” the serial killer in Broadmoor.

Convicted murderer Peter Sutcliffe, who murdered 13 women in a six-year rampage, was convicted in 1981 and spent three decades in a maximum-security psychiatric facility before being transferred to HMP Frankland in 2016.

Sutcliffe described in a letter to a friend six months before his death how Kray tried to flirt with him.

Both were held at Broadmoor Maximum Security Psychiatric Hospital in the early 1990s.

Kray and his twin brother Reggie committed murder, armed robbery, arson, and racketeering while dating big celebrities in the 1960s.

Ronnie Kray died in 1995 aged 61 while Sutcliffe died at HMP Frankland in November 2020 aged 74 from a combination of Covid-19 and heart disease.

Before his death, Sutcliffe wrote a number of letters and reports The sun.

In one letter, he wrote: “I did not hit Ronnie, although I threatened him when he tried to advance me.”

In another, he spoke of his mother: “My mother died of a massive heart attack on November 8, 1978 before my arrest, so she never knew about my mission etc!”

The Yorkshire Ripper was kept in chains until shortly before his death and was not allowed to call his wife, an Ombudsman report revealed earlier this year.

The serial killer, who was blind and used a wheelchair, refused hospital treatment, the report said.

Sutcliffe’s rampage began in October 1975 with 28-year-old mother-of-four Wilma McCann being beaten with a hammer and stabbed 15 times.

He was interrogated nine times in the course of a large-scale investigation, but still evaded arrest and continued to kill.

Over the next five years, the Ripper claimed the lives of 12 other innocent women before finally being arrested by Sheffield Police for driving with false number plates and convicted in 1981.
