Saints and Scroungers, Series 5 Episode 3 of 20

Duration: 44 minutes

Matt visits the headquarters of the DWP to discover more about a seven-year-long benefit fraud involving a man who had said he could not even get out of bed by himself. Investigators go undercover to film him at his day job, but will their surveillance footage be enough to convict him?

And we meet Sue, a grandmother trying her hardest to care for her severely disabled grandchild; but with the introduction of the so-called 'bedroom tax', their future could be uncertain.
