CPS staff accused of fake taxi claims totalling £1m

A Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) finance manager has been charged with conspiracy to commit fraud over false taxi claims totalling at least £1 million, the CPS said tonight.

Lisa Burrows and another member of staff, who has not yet been named or charged, work for CPS West Midlands.

The allegations concern false claims for witness care taxi services to the value of at least £1,000,000 when no such services had been supplied, the CPS said in a statement.

Burrows is 41 and from Birmingham.
