There were more than a few raised eyebrows at the ‘Better Brows Kiosk’ in The Mall Luton 20 September when UK Border Agency (UKBA) officers marched in and plucked two Indian illegal workers from the staff. 

The women, aged 20 and 21, were detained by the UKBA in a raid on the brows business at about 2.30pm. 

Both were found to have overstayed in the UK illegally after their visas expired and were working without permission. 

The 21 year old was taken into UK Border Agency detention and the 20 year old was released on immigration bail while her case is worked on.  

Both will be removed from the country if they are found to have no right to be here, assuming the 20 year old doesn’t skip bail. 

Chief Immigration Officer Alex Swain said: “We have teams across the country carrying out raids like this on a daily basis. Offenders should know that there is no hiding place and that where we find people who are in the UK illegally we will seek to remove them.”

Having said that, one of the two was released and presumably can now find another “hiding place”.

Many UKBA raids are initiated by a tip off or ‘inteligence’ from a member of the public, sometimes from an ex-wife/partner.
