Six illegal immigrants from Nepal have been deported from the UK after the UK Border Agency staff raided on a house in Isleworth, a town in London borough of Hounslow.

The UKBA officers visited the property on Wood Lane on July 10, Tuesday after receiving intelligence.

They arrested four men and two women, all aged between 20 and 24. All six people were from Nepal and were all in the UK illegally having overstayed their visas.

They were detained until they were removed on a flight back to Nepal ten days later, on July 16.

“UK Border Agency officers are carrying out raids like this across west London almost every day,” said Sarah Burton, assistant director from the UKBA.

The border control agency is continuing to gather intelligence about people who remain in the UK in breach of their visa conditions.

 “We are taking action against those not entitled to be here,” Burton said. “Those with no right to be in the UK must leave the country. If they refuse, we will enforce their removal,” she added.
