Kebab shop: Illegal immigrant held

A Northern Ireland kebab shop is facing a £10,000 fine for employing an illegal immigrant.

It comes after a 24-year-old Turkish man was arrested when officers from the UK Border Agency swooped on the Famous Turkish Kebab takeaway on Darling Street, Enniskillen.

The man, who is awaiting deportation, is being held at an immigration detention centre in Larne, Co Antrim.

It is understood the raid was part of an intelligence-led operation carried out last Friday.

Janet Wiseman from the UK Border Agency said: "Foreign nationals who are in this country illegally should be in no doubt that they will be found, arrested and removed from the UK.

"Companies that think they can undercut competitors by employing illegal workers should be warned that they will face heavy fines and possible prosecution.

"We are sending a simple, clear message to people who are in the country illegally - more raids are planned and you will be caught."
