A newspaper interview with the teenager convicted of stabbing to death headmaster Philip Lawrence was criticised by a senior Tory MP yesterday as outrageous.

Sir Ivan Lawrence, chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, promised to raise the question of convicted persons giving interviews with the Press Complaints Commission after Learco Chindamo, 16, told the Sunday Times in a telephone interview from his young offender's institute that he prayed for Mr Lawrence and his family every night.

Sir Ivan said: "It is not right that a murderous thug can give interviews like this."
