Flintshire Magistrate’s Court heard today how immigration enforcement officers raided the site of the new £212 million Berwyn Prison in Wrexham, on Friday.

One Ukrainian man said to have been in the UK illegally for ten years was remanded in custody; his case was sent to Mold Crown Court.

The £212m prison facility will be big enough to hold around 2,000 inmates when it opens in February next year.
