Man denies £33k disability benefits fraud

A man has been charged of fraudulently claiming more than £33,000 in disability benefits over nearly six years.

Lorenzo Armas, 51, denies knowingly failing to notify benefit bosses of a change to his entitlement for disability living allowance between February 15 2012 and January 2 this year.

Armas is alleged to have claimed a total of £33,860.25 fraudulently.

Armas failed to inform the Department for Work and Pensions of the cash and about improvements to his physical condition.
