TWO men have been arrested in raids by immigration officers in Rhyl.

Acting on information received Home Office Immigration Enforcement officers simultaneously raided The Godfather and Chilli Pink on Queen Street on Thursday and carried out immigration checks on staff.

At The Godfather takeaway a 33-year-old Pakistani man was found working illegally having stayed in the UK illegally after his visa had expired.

In Chilli Pink Indian restaurant a 35-year-old Bangladeshi man, was also found to have over-stayed his visa.

Both men were arrested and are currently being held at St Asaph Police Station pending transfer to immigration detention to await removal from the UK.

Richard Johnson from Home Office Immigration Enforcement said: “Where we find people living and working illegally in the UK we will seek to remove them.

“We would urge anyone with information about suspected immigration offenders to get in touch so we can take action.”

The Godfather takeaway and Chilli Pink Indian restaurant were each served with a penalty notice and will now have to provide proof to the Home Office the correct right-to-work checks were carried out or face a fine of up to £10,000 per illegal worker.
