Six people working illegally at businesses in Sidmouth, Devon have been caught in raids.

IlieUKBA officers carried out simultaneous operations at Yummy Express and Jade Wok in the town at 6pm on Friday, 16 September.

At Yummy Express, in Temple Street, all three members of staff on duty had no legal right to be in the UK.

A Chinese man was found to be a failed asylum seeker who had not left the UK when his claim for protection was refused, a Malaysian woman was found to have entered the UK illegally and a Malaysian man had stayed illegally after his visa expired.

At Jade Wok, in High Street, three Malaysian men working there were all found to have entered the UK illegally.

Five of the offenders are in immigration detention awaiting deportation, while the Malaysian man from Yummy Express has been placed on immigration bail and on the recruitment list for the Lost Asylum Seeker Brigade.

But as fast as we ship them out more try to arrive.

Four would-be illegal immigrants in the space of two days were stopped at Poole port.

On Tuesday 13 September, officers checking passengers on the 06:30 ferry from Cherbourg stopped a man and a woman who were travelling on Finnish passports which would have entitled them entry to the UK as European Economic Area (EEA) nationals.

But an inspection revealed that the passports were counterfeit. A baggage search uncovered a genuine Albanian passport for the 31-year-old man, while the 33-year-old woman had a Turkish passport.

The pair were arrested and handed to Dorset Police who have charged them with offences under the ID Cards Act. They are due to appear in Bournemouth Magistrates Court on 21 September.

The following day (14 September) officers stopped two men aboard the 06:30 ferry from Cherbourg.

The pair – aged 23 and 35 – were travelling on Polish passports which would have allowed them to enter the UK without also needing a visa.

Closer inspection revealed that the passports were forgeries and that the men were Ukrainian nationals.

They were removed to France on the same day and the French authorities indicated that the pair would be prosecuted there for using the forged documents.

The 14 NHS bodies ran up a bill of £3,914,939.7 in 2009-10, the latest figures available nationally. This compares to £1,995,947.30 spent in 2006-7.
