A BENEFIT cheat has been locked up for 12 months after fraudulently claiming more than £2,000 worth of housing benefits.

Ms Ibilola Gbadamosi, of Combwell Crescent, Abbey Wood, was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court last Thursday.

The court heard she claimed the money using a false passport and was discovered after a national fraud initiative, conducted by the Audit Commission, highlighted irregularities with her status in the UK.

A further investigation by Greenwich Council found that Ms Gbadamosi was employed by the British Library in London and used a false letter confirming she had indefinite leave to remain in the UK.

Ms Gbadamosi pleaded guilty to all three charges relating to the false passport, fake letter submitted to the British library and benefit fraud.
