‘Blood money’: Lee Rigby’s mother blasts her son’s murderer as he chases £100,000 from taxpayers over claims jail injury left him mentally scarred

Lee Rigby’s murderer wants £100,000 ‘blood money’ over allegations that prison officers left him mentally scarred.

Michael Adebolajo, 32, who murdered the fusilier Mr Rigby, 25, in Woolwich, south east London, in 2013, lost his two front teeth when prison staff tried to restrain him four years ago.

He has now officially launched a court writ in which he claims he was left with a ‘psychiatric injury’.

And Mr Rigby’s mother, Lyn, 50, hit out at her son’s killer and said he deserves to ‘die in jail’.
