A POLISH woman has admitted organising four bogus weddings and taking part in one herself.

Andzelina Surmaj, 30, of Bradford, pleaded guilty to her roles in the sham ceremonies across East Lancashire and Greater Manchester. All the weddings involved Eastern Europeans marrying non-EU citizens.

Appearing with co-defendant Milan Cina, 38, at Burnley Crown Court, both pleaded guilty to several counts of assisting unlawful immigration.

Cina, of Lister Gardens, Bradford, was remanded in custody, while Surmaj, of Girlington Road, was granted conditional bail. Sentencing was adjourned until March 19.
