Benefits cheat


A woman who defrauded almost £ 10,000 from the Department of Works and Pensions has repaid more than half of it, a court heard.

Linda Skilling claimed benefits to which she was not entitled to over a period of nearly six years.

Skilling, 60, of Linfern Road, Dailly, previously admitted the offence. She appeared at Ayr Sheriff Court on Tuesday, September 10, and the court was told that £ 6250 had been repaid.

Sheriff Desmond Leslie continued the matter until December.
