A woman will appear on trial at Grantham Magistrates’ Court on February 21 after denying failing to notify of a change of circumstances which would affect her benefits.

Lesley Pearson, 28, of Ringleas, Cotgrave, is accused of failing to notify South Kesteven District Council of a change of circumstances between November 14 2011 and December 30 2012, which she knew would affect her entitlement to Housing and Council Tax benefit, namely that she was living with a man as husband and wife.

She is also accused of failing to notify the Department of Work and Pensions between November 9 2011 and December 17 2012 of a change of circumstances which she knew would affect her entitlement to Income Support, namely that she was living with a man as husband and wife.
