FAKE illness

This is another story from the "You Couldn't Make it Up" department. Lisa Hayden-Johnson was jailed for three years last week for pretending her son had a range of serious illnesses. She spent welfare benefits, grants and donations from well-wishers thanks to her son's diabetes, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, a neurological condition, a metabolic disorder, food allergies and an intolerance to sunlight. Neighbours got suspicious when they spotted the teenager playing football in the back garden and eating an ice-cream. Read the full story here. If it wasn't so serious it would be funny.
