Did nobody else watch it? (BBC1 7.30 tonight)

Bloke who'd been working for years in Newham Council as Benefit Officer, in league with two letting agencies, making fraudulent 'back payments' of rent amounting to nearly £200K.

Especially after last week's Panorama, you do wonder how much housing-related fraud is going on.

But to be fair to this lot, it was the council's own staff who first picked it up.

They all got prison sentences, but still only 2 yrs 4 months max. No mention of getting the money back.
