Four face deportation after raids

FOUR foreign nationals could be deported following raids on two restaurants in Hull.

Three Bangladeshi men were found working illegally in the Raj Pavilion on Beverley Road during the UK Border Agency operation. Two, aged 46 and 32, were failed asylum seekers; the third, 31, had entered the country illegally.

A 22-year-old failed asylum seeker from Afghanistan was also arrested at Chicago Fast Food on Holderness Road.

Although he did not appear to be working there, he and the three others remain in detention, pending deportation.

The employer of the Raj Pavilion was handed a civil penalty notice for employing illegal workers. The business could be fined as much as 10,000 per employee, if it cannot prove it carried out the correct pre-employment checks.

Immigration Minister Damian Green said: "These operations are among many being carried out across the country following the success of a major crackdown on immigration crime during the summer, which generated a large number of arrests, cash seizures and prosecutions as well as fresh intelligence."
