Murderer awarded £815 for broken nose clippers

A triple murderer has been awarded £815 in compensation after prison guards broke his nose hair trimmer.

Kevan Thakrar, 26, sued prison officials, claiming he had been "stressed" by the loss of "priceless possessions" including photographs, letters and a carton of fruit juice.

He boasted on Facebook that the Government had now "paid up". Of the £815 paid to Thakrar, £500 was reportedly awarded because prison bosses refused to apologise to him.

Thakrar was jailed alongside brother Miran for a gangland-style execution of three men in 2007.
