SHARK-BITE BENEFIT FRAUDSTER IS JAILED
ABOVE: Karl Sacks was filmed on trek despite claiming too much benefit

A MAN who lost his leg in a shark attack then claimed £40,000 too much in benefits has been jailed after going on a TV desert trek.

Karl Sacks, 48, was caged for 10 weeks following his appearance on documentary Beyond Boundaries.

The dad-of-three from Leeds pleaded guilty to five counts of benefit fraud for claiming severe disability allowance.

He was involved in a coast-to-coast trek across the Nicaraguan desert on the BBC2 show in 2005.

Sacks, who lost part of his leg in 1995 in a shark diving trip off South Africa, also claimed the benefit while working as a car salesman and profited from selling property.

Leeds Crown Court heard he should have informed benefits bosses of his increased mobility.
