Illegal workers found at two Grantham takeaways
Three illegal immigrants were caught in UK Border Agency raids on two Grantham takeaways.
Last Wednesday, officers visited the Peking Wok, in Wharf Road, and two Chinese nationals were arrested.
The first was a 45-year-old woman who had overstayed her visa, and the other was a 19-year-old man who had entered the UK illegally.
On October 23, officers went to Emperor’s Kitchen, in Westgate, where they arrested a Chinese man, aged 32, after checks showed that he had no right to be in the UK.
All three remain in detention while the agency takes action to remove them to China. Both businesses were served with potential fines of up to £10,000 per worker which will have to be paid unless they can prove they took sufficient steps to confirm their right to work.
Rachel Challis, from the UK Border Agency, said: “Any foreign national who is in the UK illegally should be in no doubt that they will be found, arrested and removed from the country.”
