The warped duo used the whips to torture their victims and even used them to beat their own children. Jones, who displays the weapons at The Crime Through Time Collection at Littledean Jail in Gloucestershire, says he was let into the notorious residence by a close friend who knew the Wests. The unconventional curator, who calls his collection ‘murderabilia’, told the Mail Online that he will never reveal the identity of the person who let him into the horror home which was demolished in 1996. RELATED STORIES Jones said he did not meet Rose West while in the property, despite the fact that she was still living there. He said: “Rose was arrested fairly shortly after it. She wasn’t at the house when I was there. “I was given a choice of what I wanted but having not realised how big the case was at the time I only took a number of items.” Barcroft Media 5 One of the brutal weapons which the Wests used to torture their victims Barcroft Media 5 Jones collected the whips days after Fred West was arrested 5 House of Horrors … 25 Cromwell Street, where the victims of Fred and Rosemary West were found Jones, who also owns a fork and spade owned by the Wests, insists he ‘regrets’ not taking more items from the home. He said: “I could have had a lot more memorabilia but obviously no one knew how big the case was going to be.” Fred West hanged himself in his prison cell in January 1995, before he could stand trial for his sadistic crimes.

The majority of the pair’s murders took place between 1973 and 1979.
