Carlisle woman charged with £17,000 benefits fraud

A woman has appeared in court charged with falsely claiming benefits worth £17,000.

Heather Marie Boak, 38, of Dalegarth Avenue, Harraby, Carlisle, did not enter a plea when she appeared before Carlisle magistrates.

She is accused of failing to promptly notify the Department for Work and Pensions of a change in her entitlement to the disability premium of income support between February 17, 2010 and September 25, 2013.

Boak is also accused of failing to notify the department that there had been a change of circumstances which she knew would affect her entitlement of disability living allowance.

The case was sent to Carlisle Crown Court, where Boak will appear for a plea and case management hearing in July.

Is it time to reintroduce the dog licence?

Yes - It would certainly make people more responsible about looking after their pets

No - Some people will just abandon dogs whether they've paid for a licence or not

Maybe - but also all dogs should be microchipped and tagged so owners can be traced
