RUTH ELLIS.........

The last woman to be hanged in the UK. She shot her lover, David Blakley, outside the Magdala pub in North London in 1955. She was arrested at the scene, tried and hung at HM Holloway Prison on the 13th July 1955.

The still comes from a documentary I was involved with that looks into the case, not prove any innocence or otherwise, but to see the difference in attitudes in policing, medicine, society and the Judiciary from the 50's to now. A very interesting project to be involved in. First TX on BBC4.
