A Cambuslang man has denied claiming more than £ 20,000 in disability living allowance that he was not entitled to.
Matthew Marks is alleged to have claimed £20,581.90 in benefits during his time at Gartmore Terrace, Kirkton Road, Cambuslang and elsewhere from June 24, 2010.
The 68 year old was charged with obtaining any benefit, payment or advantage by knowingly making a false statement to the Department for Work and Pensions on a claim form that he had severe and extensive mobility and care requirements. The alleged truth being Marks’ mobility and care requirements were not as severe and extensive as he had stated.
Marks pled not guilty to the charge and will return for trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court on December 6.
