Detectives have questioned Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe about 17 unsolved attacks including a number of hammer attacks.

The incidents are believed to be similar to the crimes that the 70 year old serial killer, was convicted of in 1981.

Now police have made a surprise visit on him inside HMP Frankland, Durham - and he agreed to answer questions.

The West Yorkshire Police team is expected to return later this month to grill him further about all the assaults.

It follows a cold case review after a 2015 book, by a retired cop and investigative journalist, linked him to 23 unsolved murders, including a Playboy bunny girl.

Sutcliffe is believed to have been taken aback after the arrival of two plain-clothes officers and denied knowing anything about any other attacks.

It is the first time police have quest­ioned him over the incidents which are said to bear similarities to the crimes for which he was jailed after his 1970s reign of terror when he wielded ­hammers, screwdrivers and knives.

The cases are thought to include that of Tracy Browne, 14, who was hit a number of times with a hammer in Silsden, West Yorks, in August 1975.

Tracy believes she survived because her attacker was disturbed by a car’s headlights in a country lane.

Police are also probing the 1974 case of Gloria Wood, 28 — hit with a claw hammer on a school playing field in Bradford by a man who offered to carry her bags.

Also among cases linked to Sutcliffe is that of 20 year old Maureen Lea, known as Mo, who was battered as she walked home from a pub in Leeds in October 1980 - just a year before Sutcliffe’s arrest.

Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe has been linked to the murders of two more women in Sweden, it was claimed last night. The serial killer has been named as a possible suspect in the unsolved murders in the country 37 years ago. Detectives are probing the death of a 31-year-old woman who was found dead in Gothenburg in August 1980.

A 26-year-old woman was found dead in the city of Malmo a month later Both the female victims' bodies had been dumped on building sites.

Sutcliffe was named by British police to their Swedish counterparts as a possible suspect, newspaper Kvallsposten reported. Detectives in Sweden say a ferry passenger list proves Sutcliffe was likely in Malmo at the time of the second murder.

An active investigation is underway after it emerged a single hair was found on the body which could help police nail the killer.

Swedish police chief Bo Lundqvist told Kvallsposten that West Yorkshire Police had spoken to his force. He told the newspaper: "They wanted answers.

Including whether we have the type of murder, whether forensic evidence exists and whether there is anything that can be investigated using new techniques.

"They also wanted to know whether Peter Sutcliffe was named in any investigations. "I think you have to be prepared to go far to seek the truth when there is still such a strong circumstance that it might be Peter Sutcliffe.

The Yorkshire Ripper is not a criminal mastermind. Peter Sutcliffe, who is now 70 and serving life at HMP Frankland, was convicted of 13 murders and seven attempted murders in 1981. At the time, police believed he had only begun attacking women in 1975 - but now a different picture may be emerging.

Officers from Operation Painthall have recently interviewed him about offences stretching back to 1964, including seven unsolved attacks on women and girls. While, this weekend, it emerged that he is also reportedly being investigated about the murders of two women in Sweden, in 1980.

These revelations don’t tell us that Sutcliffe hid his tracks brilliantly. It’s a stark reminder of how badly police mishandled the original case – and how long some of his victims have had to wait for justice.

I covered the case as a young reporter. It never seemed plausible to me that the so-called Ripper suddenly attacked several women within six months in 1975, having never done anything like it before

But what is jaw-dropping, in retrospect, is how inept Sutcliffe was. He made mistakes, left behind evidence and didn’t care about being repeatedly spotted in red light districts, which were crawling with squad cars. He was interviewed about the Ripper murders on nine occasions, yet West Yorkshire police didn’t even search his house and garage.

At the time, I didn’t know any of this. But it didn’t take long for me to get the feeling that something was very wrong. ‘They’re never going to get him,’ I thought despairingly as I trudged from one police press conference to another. I was very nearly right – Sutcliffe was finally caught when he was stopped for a traffic offence by officers from another force, who had no idea who he was.

The Yorkshire Ripper has confessed on tape to a savage attack on a 14-year-old schoolgirl because he wrongly thought she was a prostitute. Peter Sutcliffe, 71, admitted hitting Tracy Browne with a branch before throwing her over a wall. Despite having suffered two fractures to her skull Tracy managed to stagger to a farmworker's caravan and he raised the alarm.

Two months after the August 1975 crime in Silsden, West Yorkshire, Sutcliffe killed his first victim Wilma McCann, 28.

Earlier this year it was revealed he had been questioned by police officers over 17 unsolved cases that bear similarities to his past crimes. The incident regarding Ms Browne is one on which they are correct, he says on the tape. It is believed to have been given by the serial killer to a medical professional at Broadmoor.

He admitted how he wanted to 'bump off' prostitutes as he was on a 'mission at the time'. Ms Browne had been walking along a country lane with her sister Mandy when she was struck five times.

Recalling the crime and getting her age wrong, Sutcliffe said: 'I explained why I went to Silsden, because me and Albert Hammond (a friend) were big playing snooker. We were coming on Manningham Lane (in Bradford) and these two tarts, they looked like, were thumbing a lift. He (Hammond) says, 'Oh, let's stop and give them a lift, it'll be a laugh'. I says 'no, leave them to get a bus, you know'.

'So anyway, I pulled up and they got in. They were thumbing, you know. We got home to Silsden where they lived and they said, 'oh, let's go up on the moors for an hour or so'. I knew what they wanted, you know, and I said 'no, get lost', I said I've brought you here, you should be glad you got a lift. Albert said 'come on, let's go up on the moors with them, have a bit of fun'. I said 'no, I'm a married man, you know, I'm not two-timing anybody'.
