A Romford murderer, who killed soldier Lee Rigby, is seeking £20,000 compensation for losing two teeth.
Muslim extremist Michael Adebolajo, 31, who was jailed after murdering Lee near his barracks in Woolwich, has found a solicitor to take his claim for compensation to court.
Adebolajo is demanding £20,000 after losing two front teeth in a scuffle with prison guards, The Sun reports.
Previously, no lawyers wanted to take on the case.
Lee Rigby’s mother Lyn told the newspaper: “This is nothing more than blood money.
