Immigration officers raided a St Neots takeaway on Sunday (March 2).

A team of Home Office Immigration Enforcement officers went to Hotspot Pizza, in High Street, and questioned a 21-year-old Turkish man who was working in the kitchen. Checks revealed the man was working in breach of his visa and must now comply with immigration bail conditions while the Home Office works to return him to Turkey.

Heidi Young, from Home Office Immigration Enforcement, said: “Operations like this are carried out across the UK every day as we continue our work to track down and remove from the country those who seek to abuse our immigration laws.

“The public can be a huge help and I urge people with information about suspected immigration offenders to get in touch.”

Officers are now considering whether Hot Spot Pizza will face any action.
