Benefits cheat ex-Tory councillor who said he couldn't wash own hair filmed hauling tables at country fete
A disability benefits cheat who claimed he could not even wash his own hair was secretly filmed hauling away tables at a summer fair.
Ex-Tory councillor Albert Pounder, 74, illegally claimed £10,422 in Disability Living Allowance from 2014 to 2016 and £467 housing benefit in 2016.
Preston Crown Court heard he failed to notify the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) that his mobility has improved.
Now he's narrowly avoided jail after being convicted of two benefit frauds when DWP investigators filmed him carrying tables after a fete.
Disgraced Pounder once represented the Lancashire village of Staining and was head of customer service for Fylde Council before retiring last year.
Pounder was given a 26-week suspended jail sentence and a 12-week electronic curfew, between the hours of 9pm-7am.

Comes as no surprise to me at all,
Tories just live in a great big Bubble, to someone sticks a pin into it.
I have lots of pins, now lets go find many more Tory Bubbles. :)
