A KELTY woman fraudulently obtained £8,000 in benefits by falsely claiming her husband was unemployed.

Dawn Moodie, 44, of North Drum Street, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

She admitted that between August 31, 2015, and August 2, 2016, she knowingly made a false statement in an Employment and Support Allowance claim form that her husband was unemployed when in fact he was in full-time employment and she obtained £8,000 she was not entitled to receive.

Sheriff Charles MacNair called for reports and Moodie will be sentenced on July 17.
