A WOMAN cheated the benefits system for a second time when she failed to disclose she lived with a boyfriend and had worked at a restaurant.
Janet Bullows, 46, of Caxton Avenue, Bispham, pleaded guilty to four offences of failing to notify a change in circumstances.
She had a previous conviction from 2009 for six offences of making a false representation to get benefits.
Bullows was sentenced to a 12-week tagged curfew from 8pm to 6am and ordered to pay £90 costs by Blackpool magistrates.
Kathryn Jamieson-Sinclair, defending, said Bullows’ relationship was not stable at first. She wanted a job but suffered from arthritis.
