Grantham court: Woman denies failing to reveal circumstances

A woman denied two counts of dishonestly failing to notify the council of a change in her circumstances, namely that she was living with someone as husband and wife, and as a result received £66,000 in Income Support which she was not entitled to.

Andrea Freestone, 37, of Princess Drive, Grantham, denied the charges which allegedly took place between August 2, 2004 and February 12, 2012, and between August 1, 2004, and February 1, 2012.

The case was adjourned until May 20.

The defendant was given unconditional bail.
