The man is in detention awaiting removal from the country.

The business will be served with a notice warning that a civil penalty of up to £20,000 per illegal worker will be imposed unless proof is provided that the correct checks were carried out.

Mike Golden, of the Immigration Enforcement Team, said: “As these operations show, we are working hard to arrest and remove those who abuse the UK’s immigration system.”
