A 25-year-old man has been arrested in Rhyl after an operation by immigration enforcement officers.

Officers went to 69 Style Ltd, a retail clothing store on High Street, Rhyl, on Wednesday (February 5) where they arrested a 25-year-old Indian man after checks revealed that he had overstayed his visa.

He is now in detention while steps are taken to remove him from the country.

69 Style Ltd was served a notice warning that they face civil penalties of up to £10,000 for employing an illegal worker.

The penalty will be imposed unless proof is provided by the employer that the correct right-to-work checks were carried out.

Richard Johnson, from the Wales Home Office Immigration Enforcement team, said: “The message to employers in Wales who choose to use illegal labour is clear. We will catch you and you will face a heavy penalty.

“Illegal working has a negative impact on communities. It defrauds the taxpayer, undercuts honest employers and cheats legitimate job seekers out of employment opportunities.

“I would urge members of the public with information about suspected immigration abuse to get in touch.”
