On 8th November 1977, as part of the Jean Jordan and £5 Bank of England note investigation, Peter Sutcliffe was re-interviewed by Detective Constable Leslie Smith of West Yorkshire and Detective Constable Rayne of the Greater Manchester Police.

Once again Peter Sutcliffe satisfied the inquiry officers, who obtained further alibi evidence from his mother in connection with the house-warming party mentioned previously. They were at that time preoccupied with the £5 note aspect and did not examine Sutcliffe’s car or its tyres, although they did examine some footwear and household tools which they felt were relevant to the Ripper crimes.
