FOUR illegal workers have been arrested in a raid at a lighting shop.

The arrests were made when Home Office enforcement officesr swooped on LFS Lighting in Romer Street, Tonge Fold, this morning.

The raid was carried out following a tip-off that people with no right to be in the UK were working at the independent business.

Three Iranian men, aged between 27 and 29, were arrested along with a 29-year-old man from Iraq. All three are said to be failed asylum seekers.

They have been bailed while their cases are progressed and will now have to report regularly to the Home Office.

LFS Lighting has been served with a notice warning bosses they could face a penalty of up to £80,000 — £20,000 for each arrested illegal worker — unless the firm can prove correct checks were carried out, such as a Home Office document or passport being shown.

A spokesman for LFS Lighting said: “As a business we are trying to investigate and get to the bottom of this.

"It was definitely not deliberate. We have checks that we do, and we employed them on the information they have given to us.

"We have been looking into the checks that have been carried out and making sure we are going in the way we should be.

"We took these staff on after identification was shown.

"We need to tighten things up and go forward - we don’t want this happening again. It has been a learning curve.”

Assistant director Karen McDonough, from the north west Home Office immigration enforcement team, said: “These arrests are a clear warning to those in Bolton abusing our immigration laws.

"There will be no slow-down in our efforts to arrest, detain and remove you from the UK.

“Employers who use illegal labour are defrauding the taxpayer, undercutting genuine employers and denying legitimate job hunters work.

“We are happy to work with employers who want to play by the rules but those which continue to flout them will face heavy financial penalties.

“I would urge anyone with detailed and specific information about suspected immigration abuse to get in touch.”

Suspected immigration abuse can be reported to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.

Many of these people are just looking to earn a living, but do it through the proper channels, gain asylum and then look for employment.

Keeps the trend going by getting pregnant every other year to claim benefits. Doesn't claim maintenance from the fathers of the kids cos they bloody don't know who they are!!!!!
whats young girls gettin pregnant gotta do with it/ GIVE URE HEAD A SHAKE/ They are ILLEGAL IMIGRANTS. taking jobs off the youngsters/ not paying tax etc U BLOODY FOOL!!!!!.
You can't pick and choose what people can comment on. So it's ok to say illegal immigrants use our tax money for housing etc but it's not ok to say single teen mothers do too??? Clearly not as this has touched a nerve. But if you look at the bigger picture u know it's true
comment on what you want, but you aint looking at the bigger picture. The illegals havent put one single penny into the Pot. AII they do is milk the system where they can. ASYLUM seeker equates 2 benefit seeker. Why should we keep them? Where as our own teenager's family might have paid large amounts of money into the system for many a year , do you follow? k Cant understand why you and kind ...... JUST DONT GET IT.... What benifits do you think your Iranian and Iraq mates would give you/ answer wake up and smell the Coffee fella!

So every person who has been granted Asylum has gone on to claim benefits?
I can 100% guarantee you that a lot of asylum seekers don't want to be here. They've left their homes, livelihoods and often their families and come to a very strange country and have to start all over again, gain skills that are usable here and find somewhere to live.
Don't get me wrong - some people just want to milk the system but do not tar everyone with the same brush. It's just as bad as saying all young Mothers are Income Support claimants in council houses, which again, I know not to be true.

they are illegal, so shouldn't be here !
Mind you its a good source of income for the government, £20,000 per worker fine to employer, so they catch them, let them out on bail, catch them again, let them out on bail, etc etc etc.
Ive seen programmes, illegals caught in backs of lorry, fine the firms, take said illegals to police station, ask a question, then give them train ticket to nearest immigration centre, surprise, they don't land up there! Thickest country ever, !

Yes they illegal immigrants, but they doing jobs no one else wants to do. Fact illegal immigrants dont get benefits and housing and medical etc... they illegal they not meant to be in this country so if they choosing to stay they have to work they got not choice but to work. The crack down should be on employer's who give them the jobs. Heavy fines seem to be working because not many employer's are giving illegal worker's jobs any more . They rent private housings, landlords dont know who is illegal and who is not. Illegal immigration is wrong but they not claiming benefits they just not paying tax which fair enough is not right. But plenty of british people doing the same cash in hand jobs.
