"The Illustrated Police News" was one of the earliest British tabloids. It featured sensational and melodramatic reports and illustrations of murders and hangings and was a direct descendant of the execution broadsheets of the 18th century.
First published in 1864, "The Illustrated Police News" ended publication in 1938. It was inspired by "
The Illustrated London News" which had been launched because newspapers with illustrations sold more copies in Victorian England. It gained a reputation for sensationalism during the Jack the Rippermurders of 1888 which it covered in prurient detail.
