A widow has admitted hiding the death of her husband for four years so she could carry on claiming thousands of pounds in benefits in his name.

Rebekah Sturdey, 56, of Tregaron, West Wales, jointly claimed more than £70,000 from the taxpayer with another woman before both were caught in 2012.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
