Community service for benefits fraudster

A woman has been ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work after admitting benefit fraud.

Abbey Gilman, of Clagh Vane in Ballasalla, appeared before Deputy High Bailiff Rachael Braidwood at Douglas Courthouse.

The 31-year-old previously admitted four offences between May last year and January, when she fraudulently claimed more than £7,000 after failing to tell officials she'd worked as a taxi driver and gymnastics judge.

Gilman was ordered to spend 12 months on probation, do 100 hours community service and pay £50 costs.
