‘Illegal’ workers arrested in raid on Sidmouth takeaway
Border Agency swoop on Silver King
ILLEGAL workers face being kicked out of the UK after a Border Agency raid on a Sidmouth Chinese takeaway.
Immigration officials swooped on Silver King in High Street on Thursday evening (January 5).
Two Chinese men found working illegally in the kitchen of the business were today in detention while Border Agency chiefs took steps to remove them from the country.
One arrested man had overstayed his visa, while the second had stayed in the UK illegally after his asylum claim was refused, said a spokesman for the authority.

Sliver King’s owner faces a fine of up to �20,000 - �10,000 for each illegal worker – unless they can prove the correct right-to-work checks were carried out before they were employed.
Jane Farleigh, regional Director for the authority in the South West, said: “We’re happy to work with businesses to let them know what checks need to be done on staff, but those who do break the law should know that we are out there looking for them and they will face heavy fines.”
