Benefits fraud trial continues

A jury will continue deliberations today in the case of a man accused of disability benefits fraud worth nearly £40,000.

Leigh Neilly from Silloth was cleared of one charge yesterday but a verdict has yet to be reached on a second.

Mr Neilly was secretly filmed by Department of Work and Pension investigators, playing golf on Silloth golf course.

He denies all the charges that were brought.
