Three held in immigration raid at Jaipur restaurant

Three suspected illegal immigrants have been arrested during a raid on an Indian restaurant in Surrey.

Officials from the UK Border Agency said the men, aged 26, 28 and 34, had been working at Jaipur in Chertsey Road, Woking.

A spokesman said the men were being detained pending their removal from the country.

He said the restaurant owner could face a £30,000 fine unless he can prove that proper checks were carried out.

Assistant director Rob Allen, the head of the Surrey immigration team, said: "It is the legal responsibility of all businesses to check their employees have the right to work in the UK."
