Hotel caught second time employing illegals.

Posted: May 22, 2010 in British jobs for British workers

A hotel in Skegness has been caught for the second time employing illegals.

Acting on intelligence, UK Border Agency officers visited the Royal Hotel, Drummond Road, Skegness on 13 May. The officers sealed all exits before interviewing the workers and checking their immigration status.

They found a 36-year-old Guyanese man working as a night porter at the hotel despite having overstayed his visit visa. He was detained before being removed back to Guyana on 18 May. The business was issued with an on-the-spot penalty notice for employing an illegal worker and supposedly will face a fine of up to £10,000.

This is the second time illegals have been caught at this hotel. Perhaps a two offences and business shutdown policy would be more of a deterrent than a fine! On a previous visit to the Bollywood Bar & Grill at the same hotel on 4 February 2010, UK Border Agency officers caught four illegal workers, a Bangladeshi man and three Indian men.

Three of these illegal immigrants have already been removed from the UK while the UK Border Agency takes steps to remove the final offender as soon as possible.

Meanwhile a Ukrainian man has been removed from the UK after attempting to use a forged passport at Bristol Airport.

The man arrived at Bristol on a flight from Paris on Thursday, 13 May claiming he intended to visit a friend in West Yorkshire for two days. He produced an Estonian passport which would have entitled him entry to the UK as a European Union citizen.

However, a UK Border Agency officer became suspicious of the passport and a detailed examination by a specialist forgery officer revealed that the page containing the man’s personal details, including his photograph, had been substituted.

His luggage was searched and his genuine Ukrainian passport was discovered in the pocket of a pair of jeans.

The man continued to deny he was Ukrainian, claiming the passport must have been already in the trousers when he bought them at a market even though the document carried his picture.

The man was detained before being removed to Paris on a later flight. French border police were awaiting his arrival after being contacted by the UK Border Agency.

Of the 77 doctors suspended from the register, six had trained in Europe with 39 in other countries.

There are almost 232,000 doctors on the medical register, more than 21,000 of whom trained in Europe and 65,000 qualified in other countries.
