Six illegal immigrants have been caught following UK Border Agency raids on three businesses in Lincolnshire.

Officers visited the Premier store, in Holme Drive, Sudbrooke, where a 29-year-old Indian man who had overstayed his visa was arrested and removed to India on May 30.

On June 14, officers visited another Premier store, in Lamb Gardens, Lincoln.

A 23-year-old Indian man was arrested after he was found to be illegally working in breach of the conditions attached to his student visa.

Officers checked with the London college where he was supposed to be studying and the college confirmed he had never studied there.

He remains detained at an immigration centre pending his removal from the UK.

Another raid was carried out at Everyday Stores and the adjoining Everyday Fisheries in Sea Lane, Ingoldmells, north of Skegness.

A man ran off but was quickly caught by officers. The 36-year-old Pakistani man had overstayed his visa.

Three men from India were arrested at the business on June 19. None had the right to work or live in this country.
