Illegal workers arrested at Maidenhead Indian restaurant

An Indian restaurant in Maidenhead could be facing big fines following UK Border Agency Raids.

Innovation restaurant, which was opened in May by Home Secretary and MP for Maidenhead Theresa May, was raided by immigration officers at 7.30pm on Thursday, March 1.

A 27-year-old man and 35-year-old man, both from Bangladesh were found working illegally having overstayed their visas.

A third Bangladeshi man, 47, was also found to be a failed asylum seeker.

All three were detained pending their removal from the UK.

Bosses of the Bridge Street restaurant could face fines of up to £30,000 - £10,000 for each illegal worker - unless they can prove the correct right to work checks were carried out.

A further two Bangladeshi men were also arrested after being found living in the flat above the curry house.

The pair, aged 35 and 40, were also in the country illegally having overstayed their visas. Both were detained pending their removal from the UK.
