DAVID HORAY, 24, serving three years at Walton prison, Liverpool, for burglary and aggravated vehicle taking, successfully sued the Home Office at the county court after suffering face injuries in a football game. After slipping on an Astroturf pitch and colliding with a lighting pole he claimed he should have had special boots, not plimsolls, and the pole should have been padded.
