Dad gets 1p refund in child support row

Man frames cheque he received for ‘paltry amount’


A dad who spent months battling with the Child Support Agency has finally received a refund – for just 1p!


Tony Nelson, 44, said he would have told the agency to keep the cheque, which he has framed, if he knew it was for such a paltry amount. “It’s not worth the paper it’s printed on. I don’t know whether to blow the lot on women, booze and fast cars or put it in the bank and live on the interest,” he joked.


The Child Support Agency said it had a “responsibility” to make a refund to Tony.
