Six men have been arrested for breaching the terms of their student visas following a raid on a Thetford house by the UK Border Agency.
Officers visited an address in Rosecroft Way, Thetford, at around 7pm on Thursday.
Checks revealed that six men had no permission to be in the UK having overstayed their student visas.
The men, aged 22, 24, 25, 29 and 31, were all from India.
All have been transferred to UK Border Agency detention pending their removal from the country.
UK Border Agency officer Kieran Bower said: “We are working hard to track down immigration offenders and urge members of the public to get in touch with us if they have any information about suspected illegal immigrants or companies that are employing illegal workers.”
