Abbots Langley escort Kathleen Callan admits benefit fraud

A 61-year-old woman has admitted benefit fraud while working as an escort.

Kathleen Callan, of The Fairway, Abbots Langley, was given a suspended 24-week jail term after she failed to declare her escort earnings from 2009 to 2012.

She admitted wrongly claiming £18,775 in housing and council tax benefit and £14,537 in income support.

Watford Magistrates' Court told Callan she would have to pay back more than £33,000 and pay £250 in case costs.
