The triple murderer awarded £815 because his nose hair clippers were broken by a prison guard "should not be paid anything", a Conservative MP told Good Morning Britain.
Nadine Dorries dubbed Kevan Thakrar's claim "quite bizarre" and "difficult to either believe or understand".
"If you or I lose our personal possession we don't have a claim for £800 to repay us. And most of this payment was made because a prison officer failed to apologise because he was stressed over losing his belongings."
