Barrow benefits claimant given fine

A BARROW woman on benefits appeared in court after failing to notify the Department for Work and Pensions her circumstances had improved.

Tracy Wilson-Payne, 46, pleaded guilty at Furness Magistrates’ Court to three offences.

Wilson-Payne, of Melbourne Street, Barrow, who received income support, housing benefit and council tax benefit, failed to notify the DWP when her partner gained employment. She was fined £150 and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £20 surcharge. The money will be deducted from her benefits.

Have your say

Well she shouldn't of been so stupid, using our hard earned tax to fund her lifestyle.
