Community service for former carer

2 December 2014

A former carer has been ordered to carry out 40 hours of community work after pleading guilty to benefit fraud.

Linda Galea, aged 51, of Casson Road, Workington, also has to pay £100 costs and a victim surcharge of £60.

Ms Galea admitted claiming housing and council tax benefit totalling £3792.61.

The overpayment occurred because she did not tell Allerdale Borough Council that she had returned to work after claiming statutory sick pay. When interviewed under caution, she said that she had reported the change in circumstances to the Council but also admitted receiving benefits that she was not entitled to.
