139 illegal immigrant suspects have been arrested in operations across London, Durham and Manchester in last week's operation.
Vans drove around several of the London boroughs displaying the message: ‘In the UK illegally? Go home or face arrest. Text HOME to 78070 for free advice, and help with travel documents.’
We say, this really does seem to be a very unprofessional operation more in line with a ice cream van's jingle.
Our advice to the Government is, watch border force Australia and learn from the experts, subject to brussels approval of course.
