Fraudulent Care

A couple who treated themselves to luxury holidays by receiving money through a bogus care package worth £600,000 have been jailed.

Laura and Philip Borrell, both 45, spent money claimed fraudulently from Hertfordshire County Council by Laura's mother, Frances Noble.

St Albans Crown Court heard Noble, 66, who was sentenced in June, lied about her health for more than a decade. The pair were convicted of a number of charges including fraud.

At the hearing, Judge Richard Foster described the case as "possibly the largest fraud of its type to come before the English courts".

The court was told that between 2005 and 2018, Noble convinced the council that a fake neurological condition was so serious that she required intensive home care at her bungalow near Stevenage.
