A criminal investigation and immigration enforcement action are ongoing and arrests have been made. As I stated to the House on 24 June 2014, Hansard, column 206, the Home Office will provide regular updates to the House.

These updates will be provided as part of the regular publication of data on the Department’s work on borders and immigration. The next update will be published in August.
