Created on 18/11/2010 @ 22:37

Immigration officers raided an award-winning Indian restaurant in Newtown last night, ordering diners to leave before quizzing staff.

Mahfuz Raha, manager at Preem Indian Cuisine in Newtown, said officers from the UK Border Agency swooped on his restaurant and ordered customers who were eating to leave.

He claimed about 100 customers were ordered to leave at about 5.30pm yesterday while eight staff had their documentation checked.

He said one female member of staff had to be taken to hospital suffering from shock and no staff were found in breach of immigration laws.
