A woman who claimed a whopping 70 per cent discount to buy her council house - whilst living in a second home that she owned - has escaped jail after admitting fraud.
Sonia Hunter became the first person in the Midlands to be convicted of a ‘Right to Buy’ scam after claiming a massive £46,600 discount on a home that she had no right to buy.
Hunter claimed the discount to buy her Newtown council house and went on to pay just £19,800 for it last year.
