The rest were for ad hoc legal advice.

A source said: “These are frivolous claims.

“It’s a disgrace the public should be picking up the bill to legally represent such an individual.”

Last week, he was freed after 33 years for raping and murdering Lynda Mann, 15, in Narborough, Leics, in 1983, and Dawn Ashworth, also 15, in nearby Enderby in 1986.

Dawn’s mum Barbara Ashworth, 75, said of the legal aid sum: “We were given no help over the years dealing with the case.

“It’s awful that he has been given so much.”
