It follows the death of 74-year-old serial killer Peter Sutcliffe, who was serving a whole life term for the murders of 13 women and the attempted murder of seven others.

The West Yorkshire chief constable said the language used about his victims at the time – some of whom were sex workers – was "as wrong then as it is now".
