Mark Bridger, the man who killed April Jones, has reportedly instructed lawyers after having his face slashed in prison.
He was given a whole life sentence earlier this year for the abduction and murder of 5 year old April, who's body has never been found.
Whilst in Wakefield prison he was attacked by another inmate who slashed his face with a razor.
It's being reported that he has now instructed lawyers to seek compensation from the Ministry of Justice.
A Prison Service spokesperson told Heart: "We robustly defend all compensation claims from prisoners."
