by Dan Bryans
An immigration raid at prominent Indian Restuarant, Benfleet Tandoori has led to the discovery of five illegal workers.
Essex Police officers found a total of five men from Bangladesh, who were working illegally in either the kitchen, or as waiters.
The raid has led to the restaurant’s license being revoked, a panel heard that the licensee had not carried out right to work checks and as a result, the restaurant’s licence was revoked by the Castle Point Licensing Committee.
An Essex Police spokesperson said “I hope the message is clear. If licensees employ illegal workers, the consequences can be very serious.”
