A woman who fraudulently claimed money from the Cumbria Community Foundation charity has been given a suspended sentence.

Nicola Moore, 33, claimed for flood damage to her own goods, as well as for furniture that belonged to her landlord, not to her, after last years Storm Desmond. Having received £1,250 she then put in a second claim, which included the same items of her landlord’s.

Moore received an 18-month prison term suspended for two years, a 250-hour Community Service Order and was ordered to pay back £350 to the charity.
