Illegal foreign staff discovered working in South Shields restaurants
An award-winning restaurant and a kebab shop in South Shields could face colossal fines after they were found employing illegal foreign workers.
Immigration officers raided the Indian restaurant Zeera and Masterchef takeaway and discovered six employees’ visas had run out.
All six men have been detained and will be deported from the UK.
The two restaurants could now be hit with fines totalling £120,000 if it is found that checks into the staff’s employment status weren’t carried out.
At Zeera, four Bangladeshi men, aged between 21 and 33, were found to have overstayed their visas.
