A prison guard who was injured in an attack by convicted murderer Kevan Thakrar, has hit out at a court's decision to award the inmate £815 compensation for damage to his possessions, including a nose hair trimmer.
Thakrar, 26, admitted attacking the guards but a court cleared him of two counts of attempted murder and three of wounding with intent after he claimed he had been acting in self-defence.
Craig Wylde, who suffered a severed artery and damaged nerves in the attack, told the Daily Mail
It is another case of the prisoner getting everything and the real victims getting nothing.
He is always trying it on. This is the sort of person he is. He has to complain about everything and thinks he's a big man because he's challenging the system. This latest claim will have cost thousands and thousands of taxpayers' money. It is just totally pathetic."
