Week In Week Out: Exposing the wedding sham fixers

Brides and grooms are being offered for sale to people wanting to cheat their way to a visa and avoid deportation, a BBC Wales investigation has revealed.

An undercover reporter from Week In Week Out posed as a would-be bride from India who wants to stay in Wales but with her work visa due to run out.

She was offered a Czech husband by sham wedding fixers in Cardiff for £3,500.

She was also advised how to convince the UK Border Agency she had been with her new partner for more than a year.

Tim Rogers reports.
