Good therapy; The World Today.

A BOWLS club president accused of claiming pounds 60,000 in disability benefits while he played his sport, acted as a pallbearer and running his own taxi business, told a jury the work was "therapeutic".

Leslie Webb, 61, from Gloucester, said doctors had advised him that gentle exercise on the greens and light work would help his condition.

He denied lying to the Department for Work and Pensions, saying he came within the government policy of allowing some activity to stave off joint pain.
