Lawyers acting for the killer of Milly Dowler are negotiating with the Prison Service over how much compensation he should receive for being attacked in jail.

The prison authorities have admitted full liability for the assault on Levi Bellfield with a makeshift weapon, but a figure for compensation is yet to be agreed, said Jeremy Moore of Carter Moore solicitors.

Reports said Bellfield, who suffered facial injuries, is demanding £30,000. He was jailed for life in June after being convicted of murdering the schoolgirl in 2002.
