Three illegal immigrants have been detained following an operation in Belfast.

Immigration Enforcement officers acting on intelligence visited a residential address in the south of the city on Tuesday.

Two Chinese women aged 53 and 50 and a 50-year-old Chinese man were arrested after checks revealed they were in Northern Ireland illegally.

They were transferred to immigration detention centres ahead of proceedings to remove them.

Northern Ireland Immigration Enforcement spokesman Mike Golden warned people here illegally they would be caught.

"We are committed to tackling those who abuse the UK's immigration system," he said.

"I would urge anyone with detailed and specific information about suspected immigration abuse to contact us."
