Three wanna-be illegal immigrants were stopped from entering the country after UKBA officers found them hiding inside a caravan at the French port of Dunkerque.
The caravan, which was being towed by a British registered ‘jam jar’(car) being driven by a 34-year-old man from Southampton, was searched at around 2.30am on Thursday 28th June as it waited to board a ferry to Dover.
The driver claimed to have been on a two-day holiday in the Dunkerque area, that old chestnut. Three other people were travelling with him, his wife and child and a second male aged 31.
However officers found three Afghan nationals hiding inside the caravan – a man and woman aged in their 50s hiding in the ‘khasi’ (toilet) and 12-year-old boy locked in a ‘Mother Hubbard’ (cupboard).
The stowaways were handed over to the French authorities and the driver and his companions are now in the custody of the French border police. At least the illegals aren’t our problem.
Six immigration offenders have been arrested following a raid by officers on a technology company in Forest Gate.
Officers visited Ishine (Gul Traders Limited) on Westbury Road, at 15:30 on Tuesday 25th June. Individuals were questioned to check if they had the right to be in the UK.
They arrested six men for overstaying their visas. These included Pakistani nationals aged 22, 24 and 29 and Indian nationals aged 27, 29 and 37. The Pakistanis and 27-year-old Indian have been detained pending removal from the UK. The others were placed on immigration bail while steps are taken to remove them. “Remove them”, UKBA dreaming again.
Talking about illegal immigrants
A pensioner recovering from cancer surgery was throttled in his hospital bed by an illegal immigrant just 20 hours before he died. Anthony Wilson, 78, was resting after major bowel surgery when the Iranian man lunged and grabbed him round his ‘ferret and stoat’ (throat).
Despite being handcuffed to a UK Border Agency guard, Saeed Nejat managed to dive at Mr Wilson in the general surgical ward where they were both being treated.
Mr Wilson, a retired engineer who completed his National Service in the 1950s, died 20 hours after the attack due to complications from the surgery that involved removing part of his colon.
