Benefit fraudster behind bars for collecting £14,000 illegally

A man was imprisoned for 16 weeks after raking in almost £14,000 through fraudulent housing and council tax benefit claims.

Michael Frith, 32, was prosecuted last Thursday by Southwark Council following an investigation by the authority's benefit fraud team.

He was found to have netted £13,545.19 illegally during a 20-month period.

During the investigation it emerged that Frith was receiving housing and council tax benefit from Southwark Council for a property in Dulwich while he was also collecting benefits from Lewisham Council for a property in Brockley.

Controversial mental health unit dropped

A CONTROVERSIAL planning application for a mental health unit has been withdrawn.

Dr Simon George wanted to demolish a former office block he owns in Ashby Road, Brockley, and replace it with a 22-bed facility.

He planned an eight-bed low secure unit for intensive psychiatric care, and a further 14 beds to be used either as a rehabilitation unit or to treat brain injuries.

Sexual predator caged

A MAN who raped a woman at knifepoint after she asked him for a cigarette at a bus stop has been jailed.

Robert Maw, of Temair House, in Tarves Way, Greenwich, was convicted of the rape of a 36-year-old woman at the Woolwich Crown Court and handed an indeterminate custodial sentence, recommended not to be considered for parole for at least five years, on April 26.

The court heard how the victim had been walking along Evelyn Street, Lewisham, at 3am on Sunday, May 1 2005 to visit a shop to purchase cigarettes when she saw Maw smoking at a bus stop outside Howard House.

Labour slaughtered in London

In Lewisham, Labour's Steve Bullock was re-elected as mayor at the second count, while the Liberal Democrat's Dorothy Thornhill was re-elected as Mayor of Watford.

Mayoral elections also took place in Hackney and Newham.
