'Glad I Did It' - an exhibition about Ruth Ellis

A new installation by Christina Reihill is opening today in Bermondsey, based on Ruth Ellis, the last woman in Britain to be executed by the state, after she shot her abusive lover.

The exhibiton is the artist's interpretation of what her prison cell looked like through her eyes.

It asks visitors to step into Ellis' shoes at this crucial moment in history.

"Glad I Did It" is on until the 1st December at the Bermondsey Project Space.
