Jackson used three different identities (pictured) to help her fraudulently claim the money

Angel Jackson, 52, of Mitcham, Surrey, used three different identities and acquired a £1million property portfolio without 'ever working a single day'.

She was confronted at home but claimed to be the sister of Angel Duffy - which was in fact her second identity - and said she would 'get my passport tomorrow’.

But police held up a photo of Mrs Duffy, saying it looked 'very similar' to her, and the woman was arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation.

The moment of her arrest was revealed in a preview of the first episode of series two of the BBC's Britain on the Fiddle tonight, which looks at tax and benefit fraud.

Ghanaian-born Jackson created a complex web of lies to claim housing benefit, income support and compensation between 2002 and 2012.
