Arrests in Oracle shopping centre illegal workers raid


Four suspected illegal workers have been arrested in a raid at The Oracle Shopping Centre in Reading.

Three Israeli nationals, two men and a woman, were held at the Heat and Click stall on suspicion of working in breach of their visa conditions.

A 22-year-old Israeli woman was arrested at the Magnolia stall on suspicion of the same offence.

All four, who were held during the UK Border Agency (UKBA) operation on Sunday, now face being deported.

Their employers could face fines of up to £10,000 per person if it is proved they did not carry out the correct checks.

Details of the arrests have only just been released by the UKBA.
