22 August 2011 Last updated at 16:53 GMT Annunziatina Attanasio had been claiming the highest rate for both mobility and care for five years.

A Cardiff woman has admitted claiming £25,000 worth of benefits after pretending to be severely disabled.

Annunziatina Attanasio, 51, claimed the highest rate of mobility and care for five years before she was caught.

She was filmed walking normally, as well as going down a water slide.

She claimed an amount which, says the Department for Work and Pensions, is meant for "people who are barely able to walk and need round-the-clock care". She will be sentenced on 16 September.
