It's a Ripper of a yarn!

THE identity of Jack the Ripper was explored at a thrilling talk.

Dedicated 'Ripperologist' John Daley delved into the world of the infamous criminal during a talk at Harmans Water Library, revealing who he believed was the notorious Victorian serial killer.

Mr Daley claims upholsterer John Kelly was Jack the Ripper, and showed his audience an example of an upholstery tool he thinks was used in the murders.

Christine French, supervisor at Harmans Water Library, said: "He showed us slides of the suspects and the women who were killed and explained why he thought it was James Kelly, everyone was very intrigued and I think by the end convinced.

"Everyone was really pleased with the talk, I think people are just fascinated by crime."

    The upholsterer's name is James Kelly, not John Kelly.
