A north-east woman has been accused of claiming more than £10,000 in benefits fraudulently by failing to reveal there had been significant improvements in her mobility.
Lynne Johnston is accused of not disclosing changes to her condition to the Department of Work and Pensions between September 2016 and February the following year.
The 50-year-old is said to have had a “significant improvement” in her mobility which reduced the care she required and claimed £10,259 which she was not entitled to.
Her case called in Aberdeen Sheriff Court where she denied the charge against her.
Johnston, of Eigie Park in Balmedie, will return to court later this month.
