The two Pakistani men were arrested at Masala Wok Ltd for a committing variety of immigration offences. One Iraqi man was also found to be without any legal right to work.

Immigration minister Damian Green said: ‘The government has tasked the UK Border Agency with carrying out an intense period of enforcement activity over the summer.

That’s why the UK Border Agency is working day in, day out to cut out the routes - such as sham marriages, bogus colleges and organised traffickers - being used by foreign nationals to try and stay in the UK permanently.’
