Three men are being held following a Home Office immigration bust at Deliveroo’s training centre in Pentonville Road yesterday.

It followed allegations from the public that illegal workers were being employed by the popular food delivery service, the Home Office said in a statement.

A spokeswoman said this evening: “Immigration enforcement officers conducted an illegal working visit on Deliveroo Training Centre, 79-89 Pentonville Road, Islington, with assistance from the Metropolitan Police yesterday following reports from the public that illegal immigrants were being employed by the company.

“Three men were arrested for immigration offences and we are pursuing their removal.”

A Deliveroo spokeswoman said: “We have worked with the Metropolitan Police to assist in a documentation check at our Angel office yesterday.
