Seventeen illegal workers caught

Posted: September 11, 2011 in Law & Disorder

Two Cash & Carry businesses raided and 17 illegal workers caught, can you ‘Adam and Eve’ that.

IlieNine illegal workers have been arrested at A1 Cash and Carry, Green Lane Road, Leicester a cash and carry wholesalers following a UK Border Agency raid at 9.30am on 8 September.

Nine Indian males, aged between 24 and 44, were arrested after checks showed they had overstayed their visas. All remain in detention while action is taken to remove them from the UK. At least they’re not on immigration bail enabling them to scarper.


Eight immigration offenders were caught in a raid on a food superstore in Manchester, 9 September.

UKBA paid a visit to the Madina Superstores and Cash and Carry Ltd, in Stockport Road, Levenshulme, at 11am and questioned staff to ensure they had the right to work in the UK.

Guess what, six Pakistanis and two Afghan nationals were arrested for immigration offences including illegal working and breach of visa conditions.

The authorities should put a bounty on illegal workers, say £250 for every one caught due to information received from a member of the public. The raid on A1 Cash & Carry would have earned the informant £2250. A bit like the bounty put on grey squirrels that was in force when I was a ‘saucepan lid’ (kid). You handed in a grey squirrel tail at the Post Office or such and received your reward.


The grey squirrel bounty was first introduced in 1932 by the Forestry Committee and was set at 2.5p per tail. That’s old money when money was worth something. It was stopped when World War Two began but then resumed in the 1950s under the direction of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. The system, though, was abandoned in 1957 because it was abused too much.

    Get these Pakistanis out, you should visit Southall, West London, 99% are freshies and illegals, must raid that whole area next and turn it into a ghost town, if you know what I mean.
