£152k 'disabled' BENEFITS CHEAT caught after being filmed dancing to Mariah Carey
Lisa White was also captured lifting heavy loads from a cash and carry into a car for her kiosk, serving customers with plates of foo and walking about without any help.
In her benefits claim the 54-year-old said she required care and assistance on a daily basis, could not dress herself without help and was unable to lift kitchen items such as pots and pans.
She also said she needed oxygen tanks to regulate her breathing and had to use a walking stick indoors and a wheelchair outdoors to help her get around.
White said she lived purportedly living in a council property with her mother in Eltham, south east London and her carer and husband AndrewWhite lived in Broadstairs, Kent.
Before suspicions were raised she was caught hobbling into council offices with the help of her husband to hand in an application to be rehoused.
She fully deserves this sentence, and the criminal record that will now follow her.

White was paid £315 per week from the Royal Borough of Greenwich since February 2000 and in 2014 and getting over £150,000.
She was in receipt of employment and support allowance, incapacity benefit and higher rate disability living allowance.
The higher rate disability living allowance also allowed Mrs White to have access to the Motability scheme and obtain a Motability vehicle.
She also had a Blue Badge that entitled her to free parking.
But fraud investigators became suspicious that her carer would not travel the 70 miles each way to help her out.
They also spotted anomalies in bank statements provided by White relating to her claims.
Surveillance footage revealed the Whites coming to the council's Woolwich Centre to drop off the papers where she appeared to have great difficulty walking.
But two days later she was filmed in Broadstairs walking without any problems and without her walking stick or oxygen tank.

She was also filmed running her business at the Bandstand Kiosk in Broadstairs unhindered and carrying shopping when she hit the malls.
Investigators found she was paying her carers payments to her husband and despite claiming she owned no property records showed that her name was linked to two properties in Broadstairs as well as a cafe and the bandstand kiosk.
At Inner London Crown Court Lisa White pleaded guilty to 13 charges of fraud and Andrew White pleaded guilty to two charges; one charge of aiding and abetting and one charge under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.
The total amount of money fraudulently claimed was £151,933.26
Lisa White was sent to prison for 18 months while Andrew White received a nine-month suspended sentence.
Councillor Maureen O'Mara, cabinet member for customer services at Royal Greenwich said: "Mrs White presented herself as a severely disabled woman, needing daily care with everyday tasks, and was making full use of all the benefits available to her.
"She was not genuinely in need.
"Indeed, she carried out a deliberate and sustained fraud, stealing a staggering amount of money - money meant for people who are genuinely in need.
"She fully deserves this sentence, and the criminal record that will now follow her."
