Family again denied compo

THE father of a man murdered as he confronted a mob outside his home has spoken of his dismay after his family was turned down for compensation because his son was judged to have contributed to his own death.

Kevin Johnson, aged 22, died of a single stab wound to the chest after he confronted three youths who were keeping his baby awake in Sunderland in 2007.

His father John has been turned down three times by the UK Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
