TWO women from Chorley have been given curfews after pleading guilty to fraudulently claiming money.
Margaret Walmsley, 52, of Greenwood, pleaded guilty to dishonestly claiming more than £5,500 and Ann Wilding, 51, of Buckshaw Hall Close pleaded guilty to claiming £3,500 in two separate prosecutions.
Magistrates heard that Walmsley had obtained £5,500 after making false statements about her capital. Wilding had received more than £3,500 in benefits after failing to report an increase in earnings.
Walmsley was given a three month curfew and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £60. Wilding received a 40-day curfew, plus £30 costs and £60 surcharge.
