A Brit scrounger, already collecting benefits, has been fined for raking in another £23,000 a year as a beggar.

Scruffy Daniel Terry sat in shop doorways on a sleeping bag to convince sympathetic passers-by he was homeless.

But the former estate agent pocketed up to £50 a day and about £100 a day on weekends.

With his £4,000 a year benefits, he was making £27,000 tax-free while hard-working Brits average only £25,000 before tax.
