Following the merger of the prosecutions division of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), in April 2012, the Director of Public Prosecutions has announced the latest prosecution figures.
He said that last year the CPS saw more than 8,600 prosecutions in tax credit and benefit fraud cases, along with 4,000 in the first five months of this year.
You can read more about these figures on the CPS website here.
