21-year-old Polish Man Given Suspended Sentence After Passenger Died
5 Men Caught Working Illegally In Dorset
Five men from Bangladesh are in detention awaiting removal from the country after they were arrested in UK Border Agency operations in Bournemouth and Poole.
Acting on information received, officers targeted Mint, Station Road, Poole, on Saturday (20 October) and checked the immigration status of those working there.
Checks revealed that four staff members were working illegally. The men - aged 25, 29, 34 and 41 - had all stayed in the UK illegally after their visas expired.
Officers also went to Indi's, Seamoor Road, Bournemouth, where a 37-year-old man working in the kitchen was also found to have over-stayed his visa.
The men arrested were taken to Bournemouth and Weymouth police stations for questioning and have now been transferred to immigration detention to await removal.
Kenny Chapman, of the UK Border Agency, said:
"Employers who take on illegal workers are both fuelling illegal immigration and undercutting businesses which play by the rules.
"The UK Border Agency is determined to stamp out abuse of the immigration system.
"We want the public to contact us if they have any information on businesses or people who are breaking immigration law."
