Business gets penalty notice

A foreign national is facing deportation after being arrested by immigration officers at a business in Gilford.

Officers visited Babu’s mini market in Gilford on Wednesday. They arrested a 23-year-old Bangladeshi man who had overstayed his visa.

The business has been served with a penalty notice.

To avoid fines of up to £10,000 per employee evidence must be provided that the correct pre-employment checks were made on the workers - such as seeing a passport.
