Border Agency arrests two workers in Nottingham

  • Published

Two illegal workers have been arrested following a UK Border Agency raid on a restaurant in Nottingham.

The officers went to Bombay Nights restaurant, in Aspley Lane, on Monday to question staff about their right to work in the UK.

They arrested two Pakistani men, aged 35 and 54, who they said had overstayed their visas.

The agency said action was being taken to deport the two men from the UK as soon as possible.

The business was issued with an on-the-spot penalty notice for employing illegal workers and could be fined up to £20,000 for employing the men, unless it can prove that they carried out the correct right-to-work checks on their employees.
