A carer is being forced to sell his home or face jail because he wrongly received benefits that cost the taxpayer less than £110.
George Henderson, 59, from Leyland in Lancashire, looks after his 37-year-old son, John, who has mental health problems and is addicted to heroin.
George has cared for his son all of his life, without payment.
In August 2010, a Department for Work and Pensions official visited to ensure John was getting the right benefits.
While he was there, George asked whether he could claim carer's allowance.
