Controversial: Cannibal killer Graham Fisher, 39, has had a gastric band operation on the NHS in a private £1,000-a-night hospital after ballooning to 23-stone
A cannibal killer who ballooned to 23-stone has had a gastric band operation on the NHS in a private £1,000-a-night hospital, it has emerged.
Graham Fisher, 39, piled on weight after feasting on crisps, cakes and chocolate at the high security Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire.
But after complaining that he was obese and unfit, he was given the go-ahead to have the £8,000 operation.
According to The Sun, the sex predator - who killed two women, eating the flesh of one of them - was taken by guards to a private hospital in Oxfordshire last week after being on a waiting list for just three months.
It is expected he will recover from the surgery in his own private en-suite room for two more days bringing the cost of the entire procedure to taxpayers to £15,000.
The killer's room has a phone and a multi-channel TV.
Robert Oxley, of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said: 'This controversial treatment will go down poorly with ordinary people who are tightening their belts.'
Fisher's first victim was Clare Letchford, 40, in January 1998. He killed the recluse at her Hastings flat and cut flesh from her arm and ate it.
Eight days later, Beryl O'Connor, 75, was found dead at her home nearby.
Both of the victims were strangled before Fisher set them on fire.
Just days later Fisher attempted to rape and murder a 19-year-old Czech student.
In 2010 he was sentenced to 21 years in prison for the manslaughter of his two victims.
A spokesman for West London Mental Health NHS Trust, which is in charge of Broadmoor Hospital told The Sun: 'People receiving treatment for mental illness are entitled to the same level of care as anyone else.'
