Member of the Appeals Tribunal Service wrongly claiming benefits

Civil servant who presided over benefits appeals exposed as an £8,000 welfare cheat. She was the civil servant trusted with deciding who was genuinely disabled and in need of help.

But what the people she was passing judgment on did not know was that Susan Elliott-Jones was falsely claiming more than £8,000 in disability benefit herself.
