MUM OF 4 CLAIMED £87,000 WHILE HUBBY WORKED FOR TFL

HOXTON, NORTH LONDON A mother-of-four who claimed more than £87,000 in benefits while her husband worked for Transport for London was spared jail. Farhiya Mohammed, 41, claimed she was estranged from Abutalib Abubakae and he was no longer supporting the family in Hoxton, north London. Mohammed continued the illegal claim after a government initiative forced her to switch from income support benefits to job seekers allowance in an effort to get parents back to work. She notified the Department of Work and Pensions she was entitled to switch back to income support because she was pregnant with her fourth child in 2011.
