Four charged over suspected Slough sham marriage

Four people are due before magistrates after being charged by immigration officers over a suspected sham marriage in Berkshire.

A Hungarian woman, 26, and an Indian man, 23, were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to breach immigration law.

Two Hungarians, a 21-year-old woman and 35-year-old man, were suspected of possessing false identity documents.

The four were charged on Saturday after being arrested by officers before the wedding took place.

'Not tolerate'

They were due to appear before Slough Magistrates' Court on Monday.

The UK Border Agency officials were acting on intelligence when they intervened at Slough Register Office, Farnham Road.

Insp Mark Rickard, from the UK Border Agency, said: "We are working closely with registrars in Slough and across the Thames Valley to identify marriages that may not be genuine.

"Where we suspect that may be the case we will investigate and, if necessary, intervene.

"We will not tolerate immigration abuse and our officers are cracking down on sham marriages all over the country."
