He said: “The system clearly needs to be looked at properly and I’ll be demanding ministers explain what’s happened and what they’re going to do to prevent it happening again. The Skidmore family has now set up a fund in Lisa’s memory to raise money to help send children affected by murder on holiday this summer. Lisa’s Magical Memory Fund can be found on http://uk.virginmoneygiving. com/SomeoneSpecial/ LisaSkidmore1 .A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: “This was an appalling crime. We have apologised to the family for the failings in this tragic case, and our thoughts remain with them.“NPS Midlands is working with the police to take decisive action on the recommendations made in the reviews into this case, including staff undergoing additional specialist training to help prevent any repeat.” Leroy Campbell serving a whole life term for the murder of Lisa Skidmore An 81-year-old great-grandmother who was strangled by a man who had just raped and murdered her daughter has been refused compensation after being told her injuries were not severe enough.The decision comes despite it being revealed recently that serial killer Levi Bellfield claims to have received nearly £6,000 after making a claim against the prison service for a swollen lip sustained in a prison fight in jail. Margaret Skidmore was punched into submission by Leroy Campbell, before he wrapped a vacuum cleaner cord around her neck, rendering her unconscious.Hours earlier Campbell, a serial sex attacker who was on probation, had brutally raped and killed Mrs Skidmore’s 37-year-old daughter Lisa, whose body was lying in a bedroom upstairs.The body responsible for awarding taxpayer-funded payments to victims injured as a result of violent crime, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, has now ruled that Mrs Skidmore is undeserving of any compensation. This is despite the government run National Probation Service (NPS) conceding that there were serious failures in Campbell’s supervision.Ian Austin, Labour MP for Dudley North, called on the government to review its Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme. “Ordinary decent people who go out to work and pay their taxes will be absolutely furious that their money gets handed out to someone like Bellfield, but a victim of a crime like this doesn’t get a penny.”Believing Mrs Skidmore to be dead following his assault, Campbell set fire to the house and fled. Neighbours were able to rescue Mrs Skidmore and she was taken to hospital where doctors told her she had a fractured jaw and cheekbone as well as extensive bruising.In a letter to the family, the CICA disputes whether Mrs Skidmore’s jaw had been broken and says it does not consider her fractured cheek bone to be ‘a continuing significant disability’.It adds: ‘The widespread bruising to your head, black eyes, bloody nose, bloodshot left eye, swelling over your cheek, tenderness around your jaw and bruising and cuts to your neck are not listed in Annex E. [We are] therefore unable to make an award for these injuries as they are not qualifying injuries.’Mrs Skidmore said: ‘It’s not about the money, it’s the principle. It adds insult to injury because right from the very start my family has had no rights in this case.’Campbell was given a whole life sentence last May after pleading guilty to the rape and murder of Lisa Skidmore, the attempted murder of her mother and arson with intent to endanger life.
