Sudbury: Illegal immigrants discovered in restaurant raids

Man found in cupboard as officers uncover a dozen illegal immigrants in restaurants

IMMIGRATION raids at restaurants across a Suffolk town have uncovered a dozen illegal immigrants.

Officers from the county’s immigration team swooped on Ballingdon Valley restaurant in Sudbury last week.

Five members of staff, including one who was found hiding in a cupboard, were found to be from Bangladesh and working illegally.

A Raid earlier this month resulted in the arrest of a Bangladeshi man at UK Best Kebabs in Gaol Lane who had overstayed his visa, along with his wife and two children.

A spokesman from the UK Border Agency said the Albanian man had been removed from the country and they were working to return the others to Bangladesh.
