Travel back in time to Victorian London when Jack the Ripper roamed the streets of the capital. But who was he? In the early hours of 31st August 1888, a man was walking to work down a dark lane in Whitechapel when he found a shapeless bundle lying on the ground. He went to investigate and found Mary Ann Nichols, an East End prostitute murdered in the most gruesome way. This was the first of many killings, sparking one of the most famous man hunts in the world. Ripperologists and amateur sleuths are still trying to work out the true identity of the man they called Jack the Ripper!
