Around two illegal immigrants a week are being thrown out of Cornwall.

The figures come after a year of raids, including in Callington, St Blazey and Newquay.

Richard Taylor is the south-west's Chief Immigration Officer.

He says bosses caught employing them could face a fine: "There will always be unscrupulous employers in any part of the United Kingdom and Cornwall is no different from that. Any centre of population will require cheap labour. Just because we're seen as away from the larger conurbation, doesn't mean those opportunities don't exist".
