Why doesn't he sue for getting a paper cut off of the cheque - should get a couple of hundred thousand for that!

It probably cost 100 times that just to process the whole thing

A former policeman was stunned to receive £1.54 compensation this week - for an attack which happened 12 years ago.

Neil Woods, who is now retired from Kent Police after 30 years' service, described the cheque as "an absolute joke".

Hands up all those in the wrong job where getting injured in the line of duty may be involved...
Is he giving it back then :?

Thought not.

He should frame it, I would. Justice displayed, UK style.

Unless I am mistaken, having read the article, he should be getting further payments of 1.54 a week until the full amount (which is not mentioned) has been payed off.

He's lucky to have got anything......they hardly ever pay and the courts hardly (by that I mean never) chase them up.

Unless they're a pensioner who's not paid they're council tax, then look out Grampa it's the Pokey for you.

Yeah, it caught me out too. That's a decade of ingrained cynicism for you.

Nah, you'll find that they're now taking the pensioners houses off them, selling them and taking the money that way.

The payments of fines and compensation should be treated like bail money, if you can't pay a £500 fine/compo then you go inside until you can get the funds together, this crap with paying a fiver a week is an utter joke, i've seen these clowns in court, they steal a car, drive it round dangerously and then burn it out and they get a £250 fine, suspended sentence and 3 years d/q from driving (even though they don't have a license!).
