AN ex council flat is said to house 500 PEOPLE in a benefit fraud which has cost taxpayers at least £1million.
Nigerian crooks have used the three-bedroom home to steal family tax credits and child benefits using the names of unsuspecting real people.

Corrupt insiders at the Department for Work and Pensions supplied the IDs of genuine claimants whose benefits ended after they got jobs.
