Hornsea Resident Claimed Over 20k In Benefits Dishonestly

A Hornsea resident has received a criminal record after fraudulently claiming over £20,000 in benefits. Colin Wilce, aged 65, of Marlborough Avenue, Hornsea, appeared at Hull Crown Court for sentencing on Monday, 17th March after pleading guilty to dishonestly failing to disclose information, affecting his entitlement to pension credit and council tax benefit, at an earlier hearing. The case was brought to court following an investigation by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and the Department for Work and Pensions, who discovered via a data matching exercise that Colin Wilce had failed to declare capital in excess of £140,000. Mr Colin Wilce received a six month custodial sentence, suspended for 12 months, incorporating 180 hours of unpaid work. Mr Wilce was also ordered to pay £400 towards costs. In addition, he also has to repay the £21,990.21 he fraudulently claimed between July 2010 and May 2013. Andy Hardy, the council’s fraud investigation manager, said: “The authority’s commitment to joint working continues to be effective.

The scheme has been created by the Reading Agency who have worked in partnership with Rugby League World Cup 2013 to deliver it to local children aged four and over. Players from both the Robins and Hull FC have given up their time in recent weeks to go along and read stories to the children. Josh and Connor attended Hornsea Library, whilst Sonny put his reading skills to the test at Hedon Library. All three were more than happy to get involved with what is a very worthwhile scheme and Sonny commented: “It was quite daunting having to read to an audience as it’s not something I’ve done before.
