Men illegally working in Lydd face deportation

Three men working illegally are facing deportation following a raid on a restaurant in Kent.

They were arrested after the UK Border Agency carried out immigration checks on staff at Tandoori Cottage on the High Street, Lydd.

Officers found three Bangladeshi nationals who had failed to leave the UK when their visas expired.

To avoid a £30,000 fine, the restaurant must provide evidence that the correct pre-employment checks were made.

Two of the men, aged 31 and 28, are in immigration detention pending removal from the UK.

The third man, also aged 28, must report weekly to the UK Border Agency while an outstanding immigration application is considered.

If it is turned down he will also face removal.
