A BENEFITS cheat who worked as a cleaner in Britain’s first nudist hotel has been spared jail for a nine-year fraud which netted her over £30,000.
Cindy Frost, 53, had claimed she was unable to work but was caught when officials discovered her working at The Clover Hotel in Erdington, Birmingham.
Frost, who pleaded guilty to one count of failing to declare a change in circumstances at a hearing earlier this month, was handed a 12-week suspended sentence at Birmingham Magistrates Court.
Frost, also from Erdington, racked up £32,063.63 in incapacity benefit – awarded for ill health – between 6 April 2002 and 3 August last year.
