A Thought for Today
Mrs Gladys Kensington Yule was the one (so-called) witness of the shooting of David Blakely, who took the oath and testified against Ruth Ellis at her trial for murder in 1955.
Three youths who were walking together some distance from the crime scene on 10th April 1955, all gave contradictory descriptions to the police, of what they saw and heard. None of them testified in court.
Mrs Kensington Yule had told the police in a statement that was then locked away for nearly 50 years, that she would not recognise the lady again who she saw firing a gun, yet stood up at the Old Bailey and testified against Ruth Ellis.
