The Trial of Ruth Ellis – The Last Woman to be Hanged
At 9 a.m. on Wednesday 13th July 1955, Ruth Ellis became the last woman to hang in Britain.
Convicted of shooting her unfaithful lover, David Blakeley, in cold blood, as he stood by his sports car on Easter Sunday - the calm and dignified court appearance of this mother of two young children and the furore that accompanied her sentence, ensured that this trial was to have a memorable place in the annals of British justice.
