Default Just how late after 1888, did Ripper scares continue?

I recently watched the Kemp brothers, version of the Kray's film. To anyone who hasn't seen it. There's a scene at the beginning, set in an underground tube station (I assume Bethnal Green tube station?), during an air raid. Local kids are being told a tale about Jack the Ripper by Granddad Kray. This got me thinking, was this scene based on the directors childhood memories perhaps?

Just how long after the fact, was Jack still in the public consciousness?

Has anyone got any information such as newspaper articles, reporting later Ripper scares?

I'm curious to know just how long after 1888, Jack was still being talked about?
