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.

The shooting took place as it was getting dark.

  1. Dear Monica.

    For the last 3 weeks, I’ve been reading all I could find about Ruth Ellis. Finally I came across your blog and read the 5 chapters you wrote. Also I watched The Last Hangman. I’m spanish living in the Canary Islands now, but lived in London and Canada for many years. I have started translating all I copied from your blog, so if you are interested, will send you the translation ( no charge ) once it’s finished. Also I intend to make a video with pictures of Ruth and other people who participated in the Ruth Elli’s case and other adds -on, such as parts of your book etc…
    I value very much your efforts in bringing to light the truth about such an injustice, as well as Muriel’s.

    It will take some time, cause I want to do a proper job

    All the best
