A takeaway worker will be deported for overstaying his immigration visa after being caught during police raids.

Officers also found drugs and arrested two other men after busting premises on Wakefield Road, in Normanton, last Friday evening.

Members from Normanton neighbourhood police team (NPT) worked with the UK Border Agency to carry out warrants at Ali’s and the Village takeaway restaurants.

They also searched three vehicles and an upstairs flat after tip-offs from the public.

A 32-year-old Pakistan national was arrested from the Village takeaway as his visa had expired and the UK Border Agency will deport him.

A 39-year-old man from Ali’s was charged with possession of cannabis and amphetamine and is due to appear in court next week.

And a 29-year-old man from the same premises was given a caution for possession of cannabis.
