Fresh evidence in A4e 'fraud' saga

Welfare-to-work firm A4e knew of widespread potential fraud and systematic failures by management to control it, a leaked document suggests.

BBC Newsnight has obtained the results of a confidential 2009 internal audit of work by A4e's top recruiters.

The auditors found examples of staff claiming for putting people into jobs which did not exist, jobs which did not qualify for payment and fabricating paperwork to back up claims.

A4e has so far declined to comment.

Newsnight's Paul Mason has more details.
