Katona's mother admits tax fraud

The mother of ex-singer Kerry Katona has pleaded guilty to benefit fraud.

Susan Katona, 48, of Dickinson Street, Warrington, Cheshire, admitted wrongly claiming income support and council tax benefit at Runcorn Magistrates Court.

She failed to notify the benefits office of a change of circumstances between July 2006 and March 2007.

It was alleged the overpayment was made as Mrs Katona failed to declare her income from media interviews about her daughter.

The case was adjourned to 9 June for reports to be prepared.
