A family of African fraudsters stole at least £4million from taxpayers in a 20-year scam.

One created fake identities for up to 100 children to milk the benefit system.

She also claimed to suffer from HIV and require costly drugs – but in reality sent them back to Uganda to be sold for huge profits.

A court heard that supplying the drugs for so many years cost the taxpayer more than £2million.

A further £154,000 went on education for the ‘family’, with £37,500 for a single higher education course.

Fraud relating to accommodation costs and sub-letting of flats cost £650,000, and the family’s myriad benefits totalled £900,000.
