Man was not due benefits

A MARKET Rasen man has been fined £100 for fraudulently claiming housing and council tax benefits, Lincoln Magistrates’ Court was told.

David Clack, 25, of Velden Way, failed to let West Lindsey District Council know his income had increased and continued to claim more benefits than he was entitled to between April 1, 2010 and April, 30, 2011.

Clack was ordered to pay £50 court costs and the £15 victim surcharge.
